The Swedish Afa Försäkring (Afa Insurance), which manages collectively agreed insurance, has recently published a series of research projects on digitalisation within the regional and municipal sectors.

Digitalisation is having a significant impact on the work environment and, in this sense, the research projects look into questions like the integration of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) into working routines through robotics.

Afa Försäkring manages occupational safety and health (OSH) knowledge and resources, working in the ill-health prevention in the workplace to ensure better working conditions for all workers.

Research reports (only in Swedish language) are available here
