Abstract [en]

The articles in this anthology deal with the development of the work environment,health hazards and work safety in Sweden from a historical, sociologicaland multidisciplinary point of departure. The over all aim is to introduce Swedishhistorical research on this topic to an international readership, to integrate thisresearch in the international discourse and to stimulate new research within thefield. The nine articles have been written within various disciplines and fromdifferent theoretical points of departure. A common denominator is the treatmentof the work environment and work safety as a multifaceted and complex socialissue. The focus is on how problems in the work environment have developedover time and how the state and the parties in the labour market on the centraland local levels have dealt with this issue. The articles also reflect the developmentof gender relations in working life, labour legislation, handicappedworkers’ situation in the labour market, the public discourse on work environmentalproblems and the meaning of the concept “work environment”.
