Summary - Surveillance and monitoring of remote workers: implications for occupational safety and health

Keywords:

This summary examines the occupational safety and health (OSH) implications of (digital) surveillance and monitoring practices for remote workers, looking also at differences among in-place and remote workers. The findings reveal that while such systems may increase psychosocial risks and negative health outcomes, implementing OSH preventive measures has a positive effect on reducing these risks and limiting health impacts.

These insights are invaluable for extending health and safety protections to this new form of workers, covering several types of work organised outside employers’ premises.
