Future of work: challenges and opportunities for occupational health and safety
The Italian Workers Compensation Authority (INAIL) and the International Commission on Occupational Health (ICOH) organize, under the patronage of the Municipality of Rome, in the magnificent setting of the Protomoteca hall in the Campidoglio, the International Conference “Future of work. Challenges and opportunities for occupational health and safety”.
National, European, and International policies on the future of work are based on three major drivers: the rapid progress of technological innovation; demographic changes, in particular ageing of the workforce and migration; and, changes in the labour market, especially owing to new ways of performing jobs.
Occupational Health and Safety needs to maintain a central role in this scenario, taking advantage of the opportunities while managing new needs and complexities introduced by technological innovation.
The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) and the European Commission are constantly engaged in identifying and promoting good practices to tackle OSH challenges for workers.
Christa Sedlatschek, Executive Director of the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work( EU-OSHA), is taking part in the Panel Discussion: From research to action oriented policies.
