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.

Topics covered include workers’ safety and health in green jobs, managing nanomaterials in the workplace and developments in ICT and digitalisation of work.

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.
