Povzetek

This report uses European Working Conditions Survey data to examine working conditions and their implications for worker’s health. Ensuring the sustainability of work in the context of ageing populations implies a greater number of people in employment who can remain in the workforce for longer. The report examines the interplay between work demands – which carry an increased risk of exhaustion – and work resources – which support workers in greater engagement and well-being. The findings indicate that physical risks have not increased but remain important, while emotional demands have increased, underlining the growing importance of psychosocial risks at work. Changes over time suggest that although the risk of poor health is concentrated in certain occupations, those occupations traditionally considered to be protected are increasingly exposed to risks that are likely to affect workers’ health and well-being.

    Delovni pogoji in zdravje delavcev

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    V tem poročilu so za proučitev delovnih pogojev in njihovih posledic za zdravje delavcev uporabljeni podatki iz Evropske raziskave o delovnih razmerah. Za zagotovitev vzdržnosti dela ob sedanjih trendih staranja prebivalstva bo treba povečati število zaposlenih, ki lahko na trgu dela ostanejo dejavni dlje časa. V poročilu je proučena soodvisnost med delovnimi zahtevami, ki povzročajo večje tveganje izčrpanosti, in delovnimi viri, ki zagotavljajo podporo delavcem za večjo zavzetost in dobro počutje. Ugotovitve kažejo, da se fizična tveganja niso povečala, vendar pa so še vedno pomembna, medtem ko so se povečale čustvene zahteve, kar poudarja vse večji pomen psihosocialnih tveganj na delovnem mestu. Spremembe, do katerih je sčasoma prišlo, kažejo, da je tveganje slabega zdravja sicer zgoščeno v nekaterih poklicih, vendar pa so poklici, za katere se tradicionalno šteje, da so bolj zaščiteni, vse bolj izpostavljeni tveganjem, ki bodo verjetno vplivala na zdravje in dobro počutje delavcev.
