Six ‘megatrends’ to re-shape workplace health and safety

The Workplace Safety Futures report explores how six megatrends underpinned by advances in digital technologies and shifting employment patterns may affect WHS and workers’ compensation in Australia in years to come. The megatrends range from advancing automation and the gig economy to rising screen time and an ageing workforce.
