Abstract

The self-reported prevalence of intrinsic and extrinsic risk factors in work environments differs between sexes; males are reportedly more exposed to risk from extrinsic factors and females from intrinsic factors. These trends do not differ between Euro 1 and Euro 2 countries. Previous European working condition surveys indicate stable levels of inequality between sexes from intrinsic and extrinsic work environment factors.
