  • Foresight on new and emerging occupational safety and health risks associated with digitalisation by 2025 (2018)

    The final results of EU-OSHA’s foresight project on the increasing digitalisation of work and the associated challenges for occupational safety and health (OSH) are now available in a new report. Artificial intelligence, collaborative robots, virtual and augmented reality, online platforms and other innovations are set to change the ways that people work.

    People are less likely to work in traditional hazardous environments thanks to robotics and automation, while work-related stress and ergonomic risks are likely to be on the increase as a result of trends such as new forms of human-machine interfaces, increased online and mobile work, workers’ monitoring and management by algorithms, blurred boundaries between work and private life or more frequent job changes. SAMI worked with The HSL Foresight Centre on this.
