Kokkuvõte

This report uses European Working Conditions Survey data to examine working conditions and their implications for worker’s health. Ensuring the sustainability of work in the context of ageing populations implies a greater number of people in employment who can remain in the workforce for longer. The report examines the interplay between work demands – which carry an increased risk of exhaustion – and work resources – which support workers in greater engagement and well-being. The findings indicate that physical risks have not increased but remain important, while emotional demands have increased, underlining the growing importance of psychosocial risks at work. Changes over time suggest that although the risk of poor health is concentrated in certain occupations, those occupations traditionally considered to be protected are increasingly exposed to risks that are likely to affect workers’ health and well-being.

    Töötingimused ja töötajate tervis

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Aruandes käsitletakse Euroopa töötingimuste uuringu andmete alusel töötingimusi ja nende mõju töötajate tervisele. Töö kestlikkuse tagamine rahvastiku vananedes tähendab, et tööturul peab olema rohkem inimesi ja nad peavad suutma püsida seal kauem. Aruandes uuritakse töökohustuste ja tööressursside vastastikmõju – töökohustused võivad suurendada väsimust ning tööressursid töötajate osalemist ja heaolu. Tähelepanekud näitavad, et füüsikalised riskid ei ole suurenenud, kuid on endiselt olulised, kuid emotsionaalsed nõudmised on kasvanud, mis rõhutab tööga seotud psühhosotsiaalsete riskide suurenevat tähtsust. Aja jooksul toimunud muudatused viitavad, et kuigi halva tervise risk seondub eelkõige teatud elukutsetega, puutuvad ka tavaliselt kaitstud ametikohtadel töötajad üha enam kokku riskidega, mis võivad mõjutada töötajate tervist ja heaolu.
