    Conditions de travail dans l’Union européenne: Temps et intensité de travail - Note de synthèse

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    La quatrième enquête européenne sur les conditions de travail, menée en 2005 par la Fondation européenne pour l’amélioration des conditions de vie et de travail (Eurofound), porte sur des sujets qui se trouvent en tête des priorités de l’agenda de la politique de l’emploi de l’Union européenne. Un des thèmes étudiés était le temps et l’intensité de travail et leurs impacts sur la société et le marché de l’emploi d’une manière générale. La recherche concernait la nature de l’intensité de travail et la manière dont elle peut être mesurée. Les conclusions ont permis d’établir un lien étroit entre l’intensité de travail et les mauvaises conditions de travail, tant sur le plan physique que psychologique.
