The second European survey on working conditions is a questionnaire-based survey, involving face-to-face interviews conducted outside the workplace. The questionnaire covers all aspects of working conditions: physical environment, workplace design, working hours, work organisation, social relationships at the workplace and highlights how stress and musculo-skeletal disorders are among the rising occupational hazards in the EU. The survey underlines a need for a more holistic and multidisciplinary approach to tackle health and safety issues in Europe. Above all, it clearly indicates that health issues must be central to an organisation's structure and development.

    The European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS) launched in 1990 and is carried out every five years, with the latest edition in 2020. It provides an overview of trends in working conditions and quality of employment for the last 30 years. It covers issues such as employment status, working time duration and organisation, work organisation, learning and training, physical and psychosocial risk factors, health and safety, work–life balance, worker participation, earnings and financial security, work and health, and most recently also the future of work.
