Second European Survey on Working Conditions in the European Union

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.
