Sustainable work throughout the life course

National policies and strategies
European countries face the challenges of ageing populations supported by shrinking workforces, more precarious types of employment, and in many cases, a decreasing number of jobs in the wake of the economic crisis. As a result, the issue of how to enable more people to participate in the labour market and to continue to do so until an older age has become a key policy issue in all EU Member States. These challenges might be met by adopting an approach to work that puts sustainability at its centre. Sustainable work means that ‘living and working conditions are such that they support people in engaging and remaining in work throughout an extended working life'. This study analyses national policies that help to achieve sustainable work in 10 EU Member States. It looks at how these policies are being implemented, whether they are integrated into a coherent framework, and whether they are complementary or contradictory.

The effectiveness of HSE’s regulatory approach: The construction example

This project has examined the effectiveness HSE’s approach to regulation of the construction sector since 2001. HSE provided a catalyst for change – utilising its unique information on the industry and expertise in understanding reasonably practicable control to support risk creators in their control of these risks. HSE worked through the supply chain by engaging and acting in partnership with those able to bring about widespread change - such as company directors, or strategic bodies focused on particular interest groups r sectors. New broader intervention approaches were designed to allow HSE to engage appropriately at critical points in the supply chain. In light of HSE’s work with the construction industry - and the industry’s efforts to take responsibility and make good health and safety a priority - substantial improvements in health and safety management and performance can be identified.
