Stressful by design: Exploring health risks of ride-share work
Introduction: For-hire driving work, such as taxi driving, is characterized by long hours of sedentary behaviour, passenger assault, lack of benefits or support, and isolating working conditions that jeopardize good health. The for-hire driving industry has recently expanded to include a new group of ride-share drivers from digital platforms such as Uber and Lyft; this has substantially increased the number of people engaged in for-hire driving. However, there is very little existing research on ride-share drivers' health and safety in relation to their work, and no research on the Canadian...
Journaliste, un métier en voie de précarisation
La crise que traverse les médias traditionnels semble interminable. Il n'y a pas que les comptes de résultat des groupes de presse qui font peine à voir. Les professionnels de l'information sont également durement touchés. Réalisé en collaboration avec la Fédération européenne des journalistes (FEJ), le dernier numéro de HesaMag, le magazine de l'Institut syndical européen (ETUI), dresse un bilan de santé des journalistes en Europe.

Internet- and mobile-based stress management for employees with adherence-focused guidance
Efficacy and mechanism of change Objective This randomized controlled trial (RCT) aimed to evaluate the efficacy of an internet-based stress management intervention (iSMI) among employees compared to a 6-month waitlist control group (WLC) with full access to treatment-as-usual. Method A sample of 264 employees with elevated symptoms of perceived stress (Perceived Stress Scale, PSS-10 ≥22) was assigned to either the iSMI or WLC group. The iSMI consisted of seven sessions and one booster session including problem-solving and emotion regulation techniques. Participants received guidance from an...
Dépendance à la téléphonie mobile et risques associés
Revue de la littérature L'augmentation du taux d'équipement en téléphones portables et Smartphones a été très rapide ces dernières années, tant dans la population générale qu'en milieu de travail. Cet essor s'accompagne de certains risques dont celui de la dépendance à la téléphonie mobile. Cet article fait état des données de la littérature de certains des risques pour la santé et la sécurité des usagers de ce type d'outil de communication...
Information and communication technology use, work intensification and employee strain and distress
Recent scholarship on work suggests that information and communication technology (ICT) use may be significantly altering job conditions in ways that are indicative of work intensification, which, in turn, contributes to employee strain and distress. This article uses structural equation modelling and OLS regression techniques to analyse 2002 survey data drawn from a nationally representative sample of US employees in order to assess the pathways through which ICT use may influence levels of employee strain and distress. It is found that use is linked to higher levels of employee strain and distress...
Technostress et autres revers du travail nomade
L'Internet et l'utilisation des ordinateurs portables, des téléphones mobiles et des tablettes ont accru l'importance du « travail nomade». Ce type de travail, sans contrainte de lieu ni de temps, peut entraîner, d'après ce working paper, une plus grande autonomie et une plus grande flexibilité pour les travailleurs, mais il comporte néanmoins de sérieux risques aussi bien physiques que psychosociaux. L'auteur de ce rapport met l'accent sur ??les dangers cachés du travail nomade : technostress, techno-dépendance...
9-1-1 Lumière sur un travail méconnu
L'Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (l'IRSST), à la demande de l'Association paritaire pour la santé et la sécurité du travail, secteur affaires municipales, s'est intéressé aux problèmes de santé des préposés des centres d'appels d'urgence 9-1-1. Ce travail méconnu comporte des enjeux particuliers encore peu documentés dans la littérature scientifique. Cette vidéo les met en lumière. La réalisation...
Perceived information and communication technology (ICT) demands on employee outcomes
The moderating effect of organizational ICT support Although many employees are using more information communication technology (ICT) as part of their jobs, few studies have examined the impact of ICT on their well-being, and there is a lack of validated measures designed to assess the ICT factors that may impact employee well-being. Therefore, we developed and validated a measure of ICT demands and supports. Using Exploratory Structural Equation Modeling, we found support for 8 ICT demands (i.e., availability, communication, ICT control, ICT hassles, employee monitoring, learning, response expectations...
TIC et conditions de travail. Les enseignements de l’enquête COI
Le débat social a questionné récemment le rôle des TIC (technologies de l’information et de la communication) dans la souffrance au travail. En replaçant les conditions de travail dans le contexte de l’entreprise, le dispositif d’enquêtes couplées COI (Changements organisationnels et Informatisation) permet d’aborder de manière inédite les liens entre TIC et conditions de travail.

Is Knowledge Work Better For Us?
Knowledge workers, good work and wellbeing In this report we bring together our insights on the health and wellbeing of the workforce and the changing nature of work in the knowledge economy to examine whether knowledge work is good work and better for our health and wellbeing. We explore data from our knowledge worker survey and build on the findings from our previous report which provided a new definition of knowledge work. Three closely related changes over the past 40 years have transformed our economy. First, a shift to higher value added services – technology and knowledge intensive...
How Does Innovation Affect Worker Well-being?
We explore the effects of management innovations on worker well-being using private sector linked employer-employee data for Britain. We find management innovations are associated with lower worker well-being and lower job satisfaction, an effect which becomes more pronounced when we account for the endogeneity of innovation. This is the case for three different count measures of innovation – a global measure of innovation and measures for labour innovations and capital innovations. The effects are ameliorated when workers are covered by a collective bargaining agreement. Source : http:/...
