Adapting to the future of work – Research theme

For: Employers and managers Information seekers

As workplaces face new and emerging concerns, our research aims to address some of the challenges that lie ahead.

Why this research is important

Work and workforces are facing new challenges, resulting from the influence of technological, demographic and societal changes.

Some examples of changes in work involve:

  • the impact of artificial intelligence and robotics
  • changes to work design and workplaces
  • how best to adapt to the ageing workforce.

It will be important to understand the impact these challenges could have on the health and safety of employees to manage the risk of harm.
