You can use job_key method in your worker to retrieve the job key of
current task. Its a thread local variable and hence thread safe, can
be also used inside threads without problems.

You can also use persistent_job method inside your worker to retrieve
currently executed task.

Let them talk of their oriental summer climes of everlasting
conservatories; give me the privilege of making my own summer with my
own coals.
