This brochure summarises EU-OSHA’s work on digitalisation and occupational safety and health (OSH) — including a foresight project, a major OSH overview and Healthy Workplaces Campaign. It explores the potential offered by digitalisation and how it is shaping working lives and workers’ safety and health. It also considers the challenges for OSH and how these can be addressed to maximise the opportunities of digital technologies, including for improving working conditions.
Digitalisation is rapidly changing the world of work. EU-OSHA’s research programme aims to provide policy-makers, researchers and workplaces with reliable information on the potential impacts on OSH, so they can take timely and effective action to ensure workers are safe and healthy.
