Occupation is a critical factor in determining the type of working conditions a person will experience during their professional life. This report explores the working conditions of workers – particularly medium-to-low skilled and unskilled – in occupations that are found to have low levels of job quality as measured by four key indicators: earnings, prospects, working time and intrinsic job quality. The knock-on effects of poor job quality and unacceptable working conditions for these workers are significant in terms of psychosocial and physical health, job security, work–life balance, career path and, ultimately, the sustainability of their work. Based on data from the European Working Conditions Survey 2010 and the EU Labour Force Survey 2013, the report presents examples of initiatives, policies and measures across the 28 EU Member States that aim to improve overall working conditions in these disadvantaged occupations.

    Improving working conditions in occupations with multiple disadvantages

    Occupation is a critical factor in determining the type of working conditions a person will experience during their professional life. This report explores the working conditions of workers – particularly medium-to-low skilled and unskilled – in occupations that are found to have low levels of job quality as measured by four key indicators: earnings, prospects, working time and intrinsic job quality.

    Verbeteren van arbeidsomstandigheden voor beroepen met meervoudige nadelen

    Auteur(s): 
    Eurofound

    In dit verslag worden de arbeidsomstandigheden van werknemers – vooral middelhoog- tot laaggeschoolde en ongeschoolde werknemers – onderzocht in beroepen die, gemeten naar vier belangrijke indicatoren - inkomen, vooruitzichten, werktijden en intrinsieke werkkwaliteit - laag scoren wat betreft arbeidskwaliteit. Slechte arbeidskwaliteit en onaanvaardbare arbeidsomstandigheden kunnen voor deze werknemers een sterk domino-effect hebben op hun psychosociale en lichamelijke gezondheid werkzekerheid, evenwicht tussen werk en privéleven, carrière en uiteindelijk de duurzaamheid van hun werk. Gebaseerd op gegevens uit de Europese enquête naar de arbeidsomstandigheden 2010 en de EU-arbeidskrachtenenquête 2013 worden in dit verslag voorbeelden gegeven van initiatieven, beleid en maatregelen uit alle 28 lidstaten van de EU die gericht zijn op het verbeteren van de algemene arbeidsomstandigheden in deze kwetsbare beroepen.
