Young workers and sustainable work life: Special emphasis on Nordic conditions
The Nordic council of Ministers has released a new book by Hanvold et al.
A sustainable working life that prevents work-related health problems and facilitate inclusion of young workers is vital to ensure the health, safety and work participation among young workers in the Nordic countries. This report provides Nordic statistics, scientific knowledge and discussions on how to achieve a sustainable work life for young workers in the Nordic countries. Under the Swedish presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers in 2013, the focus was on youth and young workers’ working conditions. As part of this focus, the Nordic Council of Ministers commissioned this report.
