The ageing workforce: implications for occupational safety and health - A research review

The ageing workforce: implications for occupational safety and health - A research review

This review presents the context in which the review was undertaken: the ageing workforce in Europe. It examines research in three main questions: (1) ‘What changes occur in ageing individuals?’, (2) ‘What are the implications of these changes throughout working life?’ and (3) ‘What OSH measures could promote sustainable work throughout working life?’. Gaps in current knowledge are identified and overall conclusions and possible policy implications are presented, highlighting the importance of improved prevention for all workers, considering individual work ability and specific measures in risk prevention strategies, and effective OSH systems.
