Yhteenveto

Nowadays, technology plays a central role in workplaces, enabling the speedy production of goods and services and facilitating communication and innovation processes. This report examines the different categories of technology used in workplaces in order to gauge their influence on working conditions and health outcomes. The analysis is based on findings from the Fourth Working Conditions Survey carried out across 31 countries, including the 27 EU Member States. The findings reveal that it is not so much the technology itself but rather the associated working conditions that put workers’ health and safety at risk. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Teknologian hyödyntäminen ja työolot Euroopan unionin alueella - Tiivistelmä

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Vuonna 2005 tehdyn tutkimuksen jälkeen Eurofound arvioi perinpohjaisemmin EU:n työoloihin liittyvien keskeisten aihepiirien tutkimustuloksia. Yksi tarkastelluista aiheista oli teknologian hyödyntämisen, työolojen sekä työntekijöiden terveyden ja hyvinvoinnin välinen suhde. Tutkimuksessa tarkasteltiin teknologiaa työpaikoilla neljässä eri luokassa (koneet, tietokoneet, koneet ja tietokoneet sekä työskentely ilman tekniikkaa) niiden työoloihin ja terveyteen kohdistuvan vaikutuksen arvioimiseksi.
