Overview of Dutch working conditions 2016


The knowledge presented in this summary can help policymakers in the public and private sectors develop policies for a healthy and vigorous working population. 


In this summary, we first present the most important conclusions from the four chapters. We then examine three specific themes that feature in various chapters. This concerns the positions of sole traders, the costs of work-related health problems, and the position of the Netherlands compared to Europe.
