Sommario

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.

    Uso della tecnologia e condizioni di lavoro nell’Unione europea - Sintesi

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    In seguito all’indagine del 2005 la Fondazione ha condotto ulteriori analisi approfondite dei risultati su tematiche chiave riguardanti le condizioni di lavoro nell’UE. La relazione tra l’uso della tecnologia, le condizioni di lavoro e la salute e il benessere dei lavoratori in Europa è stato uno dei temi esplorati. La ricerca ha analizzato quattro diverse categorie di tecnologie usate nei luoghi di lavoro (macchinari, computer, macchinari e computer, e nessuna tecnologia) al fine di misurarne l’influenza sulle condizioni di lavoro e sulla salute.
