Abstract

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.

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Wara -istħarriġ tal-2005, l-Eurofound wettqet analiżi aktar fil-fond tas-sejbiet tagħha dwar temi prinċipali marbutin mal-kundizzjonijiet tax-xogħol fl-UE. Id-diversita fil-forom tal-organizzazzjoni tax-xogħol madwar l-Ewropa kienet waħda mit-temi esplorati u hija s-suġġett ta’ dan ir-rapport. Ir-riċerka tat ħarsa lejn erba’ kategoriji differenti ta’ teknoloġija użati fil-postijiet tax-xogħol – makkinarju, kompjuter, makkinarju u kompjuter, u l-ebda teknoloġija – sabiex tkejjel l-influwenza tagħhom fuq il-kundizzjonijiet tax-xogħol u r-riżultati fuq is-saħħa.
