Key trends and drivers of change in information and communication technologies and work location
This report presents the findings of Work Package 1 of EU-OSHA’s project ‘Foresight on new and emerging occupational safety and health risks associated with information and communication technologies and work location by 2025’.
Trends and key drivers of change were identified in a three-stage process: horizon scanning, consultation with experts through phone interviews and a Delphi-like survey and then a mini-workshop. The report lists and describes these important trends and drivers, which are organised by STEEP (Societal, Technological, Economic, Environmental and Political) category.
From demographic changes to technological innovations, these are the factors that will decide what OSH challenges, associated with the digitalisation of work faces Europe in 2025.
