Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > A step toward international standards on ageing of the labour force

ISO has set up a new Technical Committee on ageing societies which will produce a number of international standards. One of these standards on ageing of the labour force could contain tools for arrangement of the workplace, technologies and work practices to maximize the employability of senior workers. A first meeting of ISO/TC 314 was held in London from 20 to 22 June.

In 2017, European employers and trade unions approved a framework agreement on active ageing and an intergenerational approach. The text aims to ensure a healthy, safe and productive work environment and organization to enable workers of all ages to stay at work until the legal retirement age.
