The online platform economy — OSH challenges and solutions

The rapid growth of the online platform economy is resulting in an increase in non-standard forms of work, such as casual work, on-call work and dependent self-employment. While on-line platforms can increase opportunities to access work; platform work may result in physical and psychosocial occupational safety and health (OSH) risks for workers.

A new report looks at these challenges and examines the policies and regulations in place or being developed — in Member States and at EU level — to address the risks.

This report is presented at the SLIC Thematic Day and OSH conference in Tallinn on 7/8 November, in the framework of the Estonian EU Presidency.
