Employing approximately 10% of the total workforce in many EU countries, the health and social care sector faces several occupational safety and health (OSH) challenges.

Digitalisation and the introduction of platform work has transformed the sector by creating new OSH risks and opportunities in relation to the physical and psychosocial wellbeing of workers.

Our latest paper offers essential factors that must be put on the radar of policymakers including workforce diversity, a prevalence of women (80%), and a range of employment arrangements in the sector.

Dive into the findings and recommendations in the discussion paper Digital platform work in the health and social care sector: implications for occupational safety and health.
