What will the circular economy (CE) mean for occupational safety and health (OSH)?Keywords:
The development of a circular economy is key to the European Commission’s goal of making Europe climate neutral by 2050.
This foresight briefing explores the effect that implementing a circular economy would have on working conditions and occupational safety and health (OSH) using four future scenarios.
Each scenario illustrates the impact of different policy decisions taken over the next decade, and together they show how widely the challenges for OSH may vary in the coming years.
The briefing is designed to encourage dialogue and reflection among stakeholders, with the aim of informing decision-making today.
