Safer and healthier work at any age - Final overall analysis report - Executive summary

Safer and healthier work at any age - Final overall analysis report - Executive summary

This executive summary is based on the report on main findings of a three-year pilot project initiated by the European Parliament and directed by the EU-OSHA on the occupational safety and health challenges posed by an ageing workforce.

The findings are based on reviews on ageing and OSH, rehabilitation and  return to work; on an examination of current policies, programmes and initiatives for sustainable work, including those related to rehabilitation and return- to -work, in the 28 EU Member States and the four EFTA countries; and on an analysis of the drivers for implementing prevention and health promotion practices for an ageing workforce at workplace level.

The project also aimed to assess the prerequisites for OSH systems to take account of an ageing workforce and ensure better prevention for all throughout working life.
