To achieve the benefits that algorithm-enabled systems and devices promise in the future of work, we must study how to effectively manage their risks.
In the future of work, algorithms will provide many beneficial applications in occupational safety and health. While algorithm-enabled systems and devices may reduce sources of human error and enhance worker safety and health, algorithms may also introduce new sources of risks to worker wellbeing.
Determining that an algorithm is safe for use in a worker management system, in advanced sensor technologies, in robotic devices, and in other workplace systems, tools and machinery will challenge the risk assessment and management capabilities of algorithm designers and software programmers, algorithm-enabled equipment manufacturers, employers, workers, and occupational safety and health practitioners.
To ensure that the benefits of algorithm-enabled systems and devices have a prominent place in the future of work, now is the time to study how to effectively manage their risks.
