Emerging risks: acting now to ensure tomorrow’s workplaces are safe and healthy
Visit EU-OSHA’s website section on emerging risks to find out more about our work in this important area. New and emerging risks — caused, for example, by new forms of work or innovative work processes — are anticipated and analysed through our European Risk Observatory.
Our foresight projects look at the future of work and how changes will affect safety and health. The resulting research can help experts and policy-makers to find ways to ensure a safer and healthier future for Europe’s workers.
The section also contains expert discussion papers on topics such as crowdsourcing, robotics, performance-enhancing drugs, 3-D printing and monitoring technologies.
