Abstract

This comparative case study investigates how regulatory frameworks of temporary agency work shape occupational health and safety at workplace level. Research is framed by Pressures-Disorganization-Regulatory Failure (PDR) model explaining workplace level occupational health and safety outcomes through economical, work organizational and regulatory factors. Two cases of using temporary agency work in manufacturing are compared within one multinational company in two contrasting EU regulatory regimes: Sweden and Poland. Workplace level practices relating to occupational health and safety of temporary agency work are explored through empirical evidence from interviews, documents and on-site observations.

RESULTS illustrate how workplace level practices that impact health and safety are overwhelmingly shaped by economic pressures and suggests a hierarchical relationship between the factors of PDR model, with economic pressures and work disorganization moderating the effect of regulatory failure.
