Results of T5 "Work in a digital world"

At the beginning and at the end of the discussion, the delegates were asked to assess how strongly occupational safety and health will be influenced by digitializaiton in the next five years. Click here for the televoting results, before and after.

The topic of "Work in a digital world" was examined from four different perspectives. Each session started with a short introduction to the relevant perspective in order to provide the delegates with food for thought for the discussion, in which the nextmoderator® digital brainstorming tool was used. The delegates were seated in groups of three and used networked laptops to gather ideas, and to comment on and rate the contributions of other delegates. The most highly-ranked aspects of each breakout session were then presented to all conference delegates in the plenary sessions:


Vision: In what ways will work be changed by digitalization? See results
Mission: What conditions must be met to ensure that the digital world of work is humane?See results
Operative Goals: What contribution can and should the occupational safety and health lobby make to the process of digitalization?See results
Tools: What tools for occupational safety and health must be created or developed further?See results
