The BMAS Green Paper ‘Work 4.0’ discussed issues relating to tomorrow’s work in a social dialogue with social partners, associations, companies, academia and citizens. The White Paper summarises the results, conclusions and ideas for shaping the societal future of work for the Federal Government and beyond. This event addresses a central theme of the White Paper: What are the opportunities and risks for workplace safety and health arising from the growing digitalisation of the world of work?
The session will begin with a presentation of facts and figures on the quantitative development of the digital transformation, followed by research priorities. The Standardisation Roadmap for an Innovative World of Work highlights the challenges for standardisation and the potential of standardisation for creating a safe and healthy world of work.
The second half of the session focuses on the impact of the digital transformation on the concept of ‘basic work’. Basic work is characterised by a high substitution potential for workers and jobs, combined with low qualification requirements and, in some cases, serious health and safety problems. Digitalisation also has a significant effect on basic work. The focus for this session is on work in the logistics sector. The effects, risks and opportunities for improving the quality of work in logistics are presented from the point of view of employers, employees and occupational safety and health.
The event is aimed at employers and business interest groups, as well as all specialists in OSH, inclusion and sustainability who are active both internally and across companies.
