Safe and healthy work in the digital age 2023-25

The Healthy Workplaces Campaigns are EU-OSHA:s flagship awareness-raising activity. The 2023-25 Healthy Workplaces campaign raises awareness about the impact of new digital technologies on work and workplaces and the associated occupational safety and health (OSH) challenges and opportunities. It also provides a platform for the exchange of good practice solutions.

What is it about?

Advancing faster than any innovation in our history, digital technologies have transformed our society and our daily lives. For workers and employers in many workplaces and in all sectors, digital technology offers increased opportunities but also presents greater challenges and risks in terms of safety and health.

According to EU-OSHA’s 2019 ESENER survey, the vast majority of companies in the EU have integrated digital technologies in their operations, with only 6% of companies reporting to use none of them. But despite the increasing use of robots, laptops, smartphones or wearable devices, less than one in four workplaces (24%) in the EU are having discussions about the potential impact of such technologies on the safety and health of workers.

Aimed to raise awareness, provide practical resources and bring stakeholders together, the 2023-25 Healthy Workplaces campaign is in line with the European Commission’s Vision Zero approach to promote a prevention culture. It also draws on research conducted by EUOSHA for the OSH Overview on Digitalisation 2020-2023.

Three different theme areas

During the three-year campaign, in Sweden we focus on one theme per year.

  • 2023: Digital ways of working
  • 2024: The manager’s role in the digital working life
  • 2025: The impact of technology on the work environment

Our role as a national Focal Point

EU-OSHA’s network of national Focal Points is vital to the Healthy Workplaces Campaign. The focal points, which are typically the leading safety and health organisation in their country, are nominated by their government to be EU-OSHA’s official representative. As the Focal Point in Sweden we coordinate the Healthy Workplaces Campaign at the national level.
