Summary - Foresight on new and emerging occupational safety and health risks associated with digitalisation by 2025
This report present the final results of a major foresight project on developments in digital technologies, and resulting changes in where, when and how work is done.
The potential impact of these changes on occupational safety and health (OSH) by 2025 was considered through the development of four scenarios.
Each scenario presents different challenges and opportunities for OSH. The research will help readers to gain a better understanding of how digitalisation could affect workers’ safety and health in the European Union and to develop strategies more resilient to these changes to work and OSH.
