Working conditions in an organization determine the workload of an individual employee. The amount of work, working hours, attitude, and workplace are all factors which influence working conditions. These factors have both a physical as well as a psychological effect on employees. Employers should institute policies to make working conditions as pleasant as possible. The government will oversee these policies. The inspectie SZW (the inspection of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment) has several points of attention during their inspections. Among other things, they check the safety and health of employees, as well as their working hours and rest time. Due to the aging of the working population, the Inspectie SZW strives for sustainable employability.
