Not only European population but also many countries in the world are being influenced by the population ageing. Regarding to those changes the actions have to be taken in areas like pension system or health care. The paper focuses on other very important area which is working environment and conditions. Adaptations of current schemes and limits valid for production planning in these days have to be done accordingly to the needs and capacities of older workers. Older workers may experience various age-related changes i.e. increased weight, reduced flexibility, mobility and strength, deteriorating vision and hearing, possible reduction in cognitive abilities and, in some cases, health complaints. If those facts aren’t taken in consideration and companies don’t respond appropriately they may face increased injuries and reduced productivity. However there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ strategy so different sectors might face different challenges.
