This publication zooms in on how to maximise the opportunities these digital technologies offers.
Digital technology already increasingly complements human labour in the workplace, but it is digital technologies such as mobile applications and sensors that have huge
potential to help in the fight against pandemics such as the COVID-19 crisis. It requires knowledge and awareness at the workplace to minimise the spread of the virus. Digital solutions are a key element of this.
While the concept of digitalisation is no longer new to policy makers, it continues its remarkable evolution throughout industry. Technological progress has considerable potential to improve OSH. In the Metal, Engineering and Technology-based (MET) industries, we have seen the automation of tasks which previously required physical labour or were performed in arduous conditions. The automation of these tasks has improved OSH and boosted productivity at production sites.
