Original Abstract

Development of industrial environment and changes in technologies always brings negative influence on companies and employees, because of the fundamental skills and abilities. The main objective of the paper is to discover potential relations between the age of workers and (1) knowledge of 4.0 industry concept, (2) threats of new technologies and (3) future expectation of technology changes. There were defined three hypotheses, focused on connection between defined variables. To verify these hypotheses there was used questionnaire survey, distributed in engineering companies in Czech Republic, Germany and Canada. Gained data was put under statistical evaluation by Pearson’s chi-square test of independence. According to processed data there was confirmed only one dependence between age of workers and foreknowledge of industry 4.0 (significance is 0,001, intensity of the dependence is 0,630).
