Samenvatting

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
    Volgend op de enquête van 2005 heeft Eurofound haar belangrijkste bevindingen over hoofdthema’s aangaande de arbeidsomstandigheden in de EU verder geanalyseerd. Hierbij is onder meer gekeken naar de relatie tussen het gebruik van technologie, arbeidsomstandigheden en de gezondheid en het welzijn van werknemers in Europa. In het onderzoek zijn vier verschillende categorieën technologie op de werkplek onder de loep genomen: machines, computers, machines én computers, en geen technologie. Doel was het meten van de invloed ervan op de arbeidsomstandigheden en de gevolgen voor de gezondheid.
