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.

    Utilisation de la technologie et conditions de travail dans l’Union européenne - Résumé

    Auteur(s): 
    Eurofound
    Suite à l’enquête de 2005, Eurofound a effectué de nouvelles analyses approfondies de ses observations sur des thèmes clés liés aux conditions de travail dans l’UE. Les relations entre l’utilisation de la technologie, les conditions de travail et la santé et le bien-être des travailleurs en Europe étaient l’un des thèmes étudiés. Les recherches ont porté sur quatre catégories distinctes de technologies utilisées sur le lieu de travail – machines, informatique, machines et informatique, absence de technologie – afin d’évaluer leur influence sur les conditions de travail et la santé.
