Priorities for occupational safety and health research in Europe

As Europe experiences great economic, social and technological change,
workplaces are also changing. Occupational safety and health (OSH) research is
essential to address the gaps in knowledge of known, new or emerging risk
factors to ensure safety, health and well-being in workplaces. This report
identifies the priorities for OSH research in the coming years in order to
promote priority setting at national level and facilitate better coordination
of research activities and more efficient allocation of resources. The focus is
on four themes: demographic change; globalisation and the changing world of
work; safe new technologies; and new or increasing occupational exposure to
chemical and biological agents.
