EU-OSHA launches new policy briefs on digitalization and waste management

EU-OSHA, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, has just published two policy briefs focusing on the role of digitalization and waste management in the circular economy and its implications for occupational safety and health.

Under EU-OSHA’s foresight study on the circular economy four future scenarios were developed to anticipate changes and identify OSH risks. The potential pathways could vary widely and are designed to encourage dialogue and reflection with stakeholders around future possibilities so that today’s decision-making can render policy more future-oriented.

In this regard, EDA, which is an official partner of EU-OSHA, is also working on the development of a guide on circular economy in the field of demolition. To this end, the members of the association have been meeting for months in a specific working group.
