    Condiciones de trabajo en la Unión Europea: Tiempo de trabajo e intensidad del trabajo - Resumen ejecutivo

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    La cuarta edición de la Encuesta europea sobre las condiciones de trabajo efectuada en 2005 por la Fundación Europea para la Mejora de las Condiciones de Vida y de Trabajo (Eurofound) aborda cuestiones que ocupan un lugar prioritario en la agenda política del empleo de la Unión Europea. Uno de los temas abordados fue el tiempo y la intensidad del trabajo y sus implicaciones en la sociedad y el mercado laboral en su conjunto. El estudio examinó la naturaleza de la intensidad del trabajo y la forma de cuantificarla. Las conclusiones revelaron la existencia de un estrecho vínculo entre la intensidad laboral y unas deficientes condiciones de trabajo, tanto físicas como psicológicas.
