Ageing and occupational risks: How to promote workers’ health throughout their working life

The Europe of tomorrow will be built with seniors. On the one hand, life expectancy is increasing and fertility rates are highly inadequate for generation renewal. At the same time, seniors represent the chief reservoir, apart from immigration, to cope with the labour shortage looming on the horizon. Ageing baby boomers will start retiring in large numbers from 2005 on, while there is a shortage of young people to replace them. Accordingly, in 2010, the 45-64 age group in Europe will account for almost half the working-age population. It is in this context of population ageing that Eurogip organised in early October a European conference to promote the exchange of experience and information on the following theme: “How to promote workers’ health throughout their working life?”
