Ergonomists help to create workplaces for all ages

Focusing on sustainable work and workplace safety and health in the context of the ageing workforce, the Healthy Workplaces for All Ages campaign provides a timely reminder that the younger workers of today are the older workers of tomorrow.

The campaign focuses on Europe’s enterprises (both private and public) and the need to promote sustainable work and healthy ageing from the beginning of working life. By doing so, they will be protecting their workers’ health up to and beyond retirement age and their organisations’ productivity.
