Developments in ICT and digitalisation of work
The creation of a European Digital Single Market is one of the European Commission’s top-10 priorities.
An EU-OSHA foresight project is looking at the impact on work of rapid developments in digital technologies, including artificial intelligence and robotics, and the potential resulting impact on occupational safety and health (OSH). This project aims to provide EU decision-makers, Member State governments, trade unions and employers with the information they need on changes in digital technologies, their impact on the nature and organisation of work, and the emerging challenges to OSH that they may bring.
Publications released as a result of the project
