The future of work: e-retail and performance-enhancing drugs pose new risks in Europe’s workplaces

Two new publications from EU-OSHA look at the occupational and safety risks emerging in Europe’s workplaces as a result of the rapid growth of e-retail and the increasing use of performance-enhancing drugs.

E-retail is fast paced and highly competitive, with a focus on efficiency and low costs. With this sector set to grow even more, the publication looks at the implications for worker well-being, highlighting the need for proactive management.

The use of performance-enhancing drugs in the workplace is also on the rise. The publication explores the contextual factors for such drug use and emphasises the need to raise awareness and to understand attitudes and drivers.

Read the reviews on the future of the e-retail sector and performance-enhancing drugs in the workplace (in English).
