Abstract:
This report presents the results of the expert forecast on emerging psychosocial OSH risks. The experts proposed 42 psychosocial risks, and rated eight of these risks as strongly emerging, 19 as emerging, 14 items as undecided, and one item as non emerging. Literature reviews explore more in depth the main emerging risks, in terms of context, workers at risk, health and safety outcomes and prevention, and the need for future research. The survey and the literature studies revealed that emerging psychosocial OSH risks are often related to technical and organisational changes, as well as to some socioeconomic, demographic and political changes, including the phenomenon of globalisation.
