Context: Info

The evolution of information and communication technologies (ICT) has led to the development of more and more online interactive tools (‘e-tools’), and the occupational safety and health (OSH) sector is no stranger to this trend. Many OSH actors have already shown an interest in these new technologies and the possibilities that they offer, and, over recent years, many OSH e-tools have been developed.
