Working conditions, including health and safety at work
Europe is one of the best places to live and work in the world, with high levels of worker protection and well-being and comprehensive social safety nets for those in need.
In the last Eurofound working conditions survey, 85% of respondents reported either being satisfied or very satisfied with their working conditions. In 2017, the share of people at risk of poverty or social exclusion decreased by 5 million. And for the first time since the crisis, income inequality declined in 2017.
