As part of our activity to uncover emerging occupational safety and health (OSH) risks, we present a new discussion paper on unmanned aerial vehicles (or drones) in workplaces and the implications for safety, health, privacy and liability and tackling emerging risks.

The paper explores OSH concerns when working with drones, pinpoints research gaps, and offers actionable recommendations for stakeholders to resolve workplace issues and promote continued progress in this field.

Also check out the summary of the Focal point workshop: Expert discussion papers on the future of work and OSH and our other Future of Work expert discussion papers.
