Supply chains and their present and future implications for occupational safety and health

Keywords:Emerging risks

The supply chain, and its new forms, present major challenges for the governance and regulation of  workers’ occupational safety and health (OSH), both currently and in terms of the future of work. Yet elements of these business structures and the relations that drive them also demonstrate possible opportunities for improved governance of and support for OSH in the emerging scenarios increasingly characterising the future of work environment. Drawing on recent research findings, this article explores both the challenges and opportunities for OSH presented by the role of the supply chain now and in the future.
