This EuroHealthNet Policy Précis examines the impact of employment on health, and the pathways through which trends in the world of work are exacerbating inequalities. It sets out the framework for workers’ protection created through a variety of EU and international policies and what needs to be done to protect people from occupational risks. This includes physical, as well as psycho-social risks such as stress, burn-out, and depression. Practical examples from Finland, Wales, Austria, and the Netherlands illustrate what can be done to create healthy and fair workplaces through national policies and how employers can help.
