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.

    Úsáid teicneolaíochta agus dálaí oibre san Aontas Eorpach - Achoimre fheidhmiúcháin

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound
    I ndiaidh suirbhé na bliana 2005, thug Eurofound faoi dhomhainanailís bhreise ar a chuid torthaí maidir le príomhthéamaí a bhaineann le dála oibre san AE. I measc na dtéamaí a ndearnadh plé orthu bhí an bhaint idir úsáid na teicneolaíochta, dálaí oibre agus sláinte agus leas oibrithe san Eoraip. Díríodh an taighde ar cheithre chatagóir dhifriúla den teicneolaíocht a mbaintear úsáid astu in áiteanna oibre – innealra, ríomhaire, innealra agus ríomhaire, agus easpa teicneolaíochta – ionas go bhféadfaí a dtionchar ar dhálaí oibre agus ar thorthaí sláinte a thomhas.
