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.

    Teknikanvändning och arbetsvillkor i Europeiska unionen - Sammanfattning

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Efter 2005 års undersökning utförde institutet ytterligare ingående analyser av dess resultat som rörde centrala teman gällande arbetsvillkoren i EU. Ett av de teman som utforskades var sambandet mellan de europeiska arbetstagarnas teknikanvändning, arbetsvillkor samt hälsa och välbefinnande. Vid undersökningen granskades fyra olika kategorier av teknikanvändning i arbetet – användning av maskiner, användning av datorer, användning av maskiner och datorer samt ingen teknikanvändning alls – för att mäta betydelse av detta för arbetstagarnas arbetsvillkor och hälsa.
