Technological innovation and organisational changes: the potential impacts on prevention
In March 2017, INRS held a multidisciplinary scientific conference called “Technological and organisational changes: the potential impacts on prevention”. It was organised in association with the Partnership for European Research in Occupational Safety and Health (PEROSH). Technological developments have the potential to improve occupational health and safety and help people remain at and return to work. However, if they are not controlled, they may just as likely be detrimental to the health of workers. People must be placed at the centre of the change process and the effects must be anticipated so that the health of workers remains pivotal in present and future developments.
The conference was intended at researchers, experts and practitioners in human and social sciences, engineering science, occupational health, biomechanics, physiology and more generally all occupational safety and health actors. More than 270 people attended.
