Health and safety at work needs to be improved if people are to work longer, according to a new report presented to the government today.

The report is to propose ways the government can get more people to work longer. This means not only changing the legal retirement age, but also changing attitudes and working conditions, according to Swedish Radio News.

The current compulsory retirement age in Sweden is 65, but the average age of retirement is actually just 63.

The report proposes raising the compulsory age to 66 by 2019.
