Digital platforms and teleworking during the global pandemic

As a consequence of the COVID-19 crisis, millions of workers across Europe and beyond have been required to stay home and work from there, making of teleworking a long-term possibility in many companies.

Teleworking has helped businesses evolve and survive the COVID-19 pandemic, but it has put workers at greater risk of musculoskeletal disorders and mental health problems.

The Telework and health risks in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic report reviews the occupational safety and health issues associated with telework, and the measures and regulations in place to prevent and manage them. Changes to legislation and initiatives adopted are examined in Regulating telework in a post-COVID-19 Europe report.
