Abstract:
After looking back over the evolution of work, health and safety (WHS) practices, and the involvement of the ILO, this report then goes on to consider the trends driving change in the world of work and their impact on safety and health at work. It considers four main ways in which the world of work is changing – covering technology, demographics, sustainable development including climate change and changes in work organisation. From each of the major developments the report seeks to identify the key opportunities and challenges for WHS and for risk prevention and control. It also discusses ways that WHS is evolving and rising to the challenge of ensuring a safe and healthy future of work for all.
