Keywords:Transport, Emerging risks, ICT/digitalisation

E-retailing, which continues to grow, is a challenging sector, for example in terms of high consumer expectations and demands.

The difficult working conditions associated with the sector as a result of the high value employers place on efficiency — such as long working hours and fast picking rates — have become well known.

This article explores the safety and health implications that workers in the e-retail sector face, and considers what is being done to manage their safety and health.
