New technologies

Robotics and networking are buzzwords that characterize the technological developments of recent years. At the same time, these developments give rise to hazards that did not previously exist in the same form. For the OSH community, this means keeping up with developments, and reorientation in some sectors. The examples of human-robot collaboration, 3D printers and self-driving vehicles reveal where occupational safety and health stands today.

The contribution of OSH-related standardization to implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 

The study is based upon consideration for the abilities that a user must possess in order to be able to use a product safely and ergonomically.  A model was developed by which products can be evaluated against a range of human abilities and characteristics. The assessment model has been incorporated into a list of recommendations that is intended to raise awareness on standards committees and among manufacturers for aspects of inclusion.
