How do elderly workers face tight time constraints?


Several statistical surveys, and ergonomic researches, synthesized here, show that: (1) the tightening of time constraints characterizes the evolution of work organization in industrial countries; (2) time pressure often raises major concerns for elderly workers, their health, well-being, and efficiency; (3) where they are given the option, ageing workers manage to reduce the effects of disturbances and avoid being overwhelmed in the event of an emergency. Thus, in designing work situations bforQ the elderly, there might be a line of action focused on broadening bspaces of freedomQ for individual and team experience-based strategies.
