Resumen

The health and well-being of individuals are two dimensions around which researchers and policymakers are re-arranging the debate on how to foster the progress of societies. Health and well-being have an intrinsic value, which should be part of the very definition of progress, and also a societal one because of their direct connection with issues such as labour force participation, productivity and sustainability. The aim of this report is to contribute to this debate, building on Eurofound’s European Working Conditions Surveys(EWCS), which have proven to be a valuable source of information on the topic since the early 1990s. Offering a very detailed view of working conditions, the surveys provide the unique opportunity to study the relationship of work with many health dimensions and, in the fifth EWCS, with a measure of emotional and psychological well-being of individuals. An executive summary is also available - see Related content.

    Salud y bienestar en el trabajo: informe basado en la quinta Encuesta europea sobre las condiciones de trabajo

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    La salud y el bienestar son dimensiones fundamentales del debate político sobre la mejora de la vida de los ciudadanos en la sociedad. Están directamente relacionados con la participación en la población activa, la productividad y la sostenibilidad. Puesto que el trabajo resulta esencial para la salud y el bienestar, en este informe se investigan las relaciones entre tales factores y las condiciones de trabajo de los trabajadores europeos, sobre la base de la quinta Encuesta europea sobre condiciones de trabajo de Eurofound. Se aborda el estrés relacionado con el trabajo y el entorno de trabajo psicosocial, en relación con trastornos como las enfermedades musculoesqueléticas y la salud mental. Se considera la calidad del trabajo y la seguridad en el empleo, y sus vínculos con el bienestar, así como la prevalencia del absentismo y el “presentismo”. Se ponen de relieve enormes diferencias en los niveles de salud y bienestar entre los distintos países, así como entre las diferentes características individuales y laborales.
