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.

    Uso da tecnologia e condições de trabalhona União Europeia - Resumo

    Autor(es): 
    Eurofound
    No seguimento do inquérito de 2005, a Fundação realizou análises mais aprofundadas com base nas suas conclusões sobre temas essenciais relacionados com as condições de trabalho na UE. A relação entre a utilização da tecnologia, as condições de trabalho e a saúde e o bem estar dos trabalhadores na Europa foi um dos temas explorados. O trabalho de investigação incidiu em quatro diferentes categorias de tecnologia utilizada no local de trabalho – maquinaria, informática, maquinaria e informática e ausência de tecnologia –, a fim de aferir a sua influência nas condições de trabalho e a sua incidência na saúde.
