Future risks

The world of work is rapidly changing, as are its associated risks, whether from an ageing workforce, increasing automation, insecure job contracts or reduced regulatory resources.

The British Safety Council is committed to understanding the latest developments in the world of work, of safety, health and wellbeing, and broader societal changes. We can only deliver our vision that no-one should be injured or made ill at work if we stay up to date by working with our members, thought leaders, academics and researchers who are at the cutting edge of these changes.

Our two latest films, Future Risk: The Next 60 years and Emerging risk, explore these issues, both in the short and long-term.
