This report outlines the current situation regarding work intensity, indicating a clear link between work intensity and poor working conditions, both physical and psychological. The analysis is based on findings from the fourth European Working Conditions Survey carried out in 31 countries, including the 27 EU Member States. The analysis reveals sharp variations between different Member States in relation to working hours and the associated gender gap, and points to the huge costs both for workers and companies arising from high work intensity.

    Dálaí oibre san Aontas Eorpach: Am oibre agus déine na hoibre - Achoimre feidhmiúcháin

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Tugann an ceathrú European Working Conditions Survey [Suirbhé ar Dhálaí Oibre na hEorpa] (EWCS), a rinne an Foras Eorpach chun Dálaí Oibre agus Maireachtála Eorpacha a Fheabhsú (Eurofound) le linn 2005, aghaidh ar cheisteanna um beartas fostaíochta atá ard ar chlár oibre an Aontais Eorpaigh. Bhí am oibre agus déine na hoibre chomh maith leis na himpleachtaí atá ann don tsochaí agus don mhargadh saothair san iomlán ar cheann de na téamaí a scrúdaíodh. Scrúdaigh an taighde cad atá i gceist le déine na hoibre agus conas sin a mheas. Léiríonn na tátail go bhfuil nasc láidir ann idir déine na hoibre agus dálaí ísle oibre, idir dhálaí fisiceacha agus dhálaí síceolaíocha faoi seach.
