Time constraints at work and health risks in Europe
The third European survey on working conditions carried out by the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions highlights the risks and dangerous working conditions that continue to pose a threat to workers' health, as well as the increase in time and organisational constraints at work. A study based on the statistical use of the data gathered from the survey provides a great deal of information on the organisation of working time. It also explores the links between the organisation of working time and the duration of working time, and the health risks to which workers in the European Union are exposed. This leaflet is a summary of the following two reports: 'Time and work: duration of work' (EF0211) and 'Time and work: work intensity' (EF0248).
