Sommario

The health and well-being of individuals are two dimensions around which researchers and policymakers are re-arranging the debate on how to foster the progress of societies. Health and well-being have an intrinsic value, which should be part of the very definition of progress, and also a societal one because of their direct connection with issues such as labour force participation, productivity and sustainability. The aim of this report is to contribute to this debate, building on Eurofound’s European Working Conditions Surveys(EWCS), which have proven to be a valuable source of information on the topic since the early 1990s. Offering a very detailed view of working conditions, the surveys provide the unique opportunity to study the relationship of work with many health dimensions and, in the fifth EWCS, with a measure of emotional and psychological well-being of individuals. An executive summary is also available - see Related content.

    Salute e benessere sul lavoro: una relazione fondata sulla quinta Indagine europea sulle condizioni di lavoro

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    La salute e il benessere sono due aspetti fondamentali nel dibattito sul miglioramento della vita delle persone nella società. Si tratta in entrambi i casi di aspetti strettamente correlati alla partecipazione della forza lavoro, alla produttività e alla sostenibilità. Poiché il lavoro è indispensabile per la salute e il benessere delle persone, la presente relazione esamina i legami tra questi fattori e le condizioni di lavoro della popolazione europea, attingendo informazioni dalla quinta Indagine europea sulle condizioni di lavoro (EWCS) di Eurofound. Essa fa una panoramica dello stress legato all’attività lavorativa e dell’ambiente psicosociale sul lavoro in relazione a condizioni di salute quali le malattie muscoloscheletriche e la salute mentale. Indaga la qualità e la precarietà del lavoro e i nessi tra questi due fattori e il benessere, nonché la prevalenza di assenteismo e presenteismo. Ne emergono differenze enormi da paese a paese, oltre che da persona a persona, per quanto concerne i livelli di salute e benessere, anche a seconda delle caratteristiche dell’attività svolta.
