Subject background

Work and work environments are getting more and more digitalized. Newest developments are the virtual communities and that machines are communicating with each other in virtual networks. Professionals in all sectors of work life use increasingly ITC-based tools and systems to organize and conduct their work, and also to communicate with each other and clients. Algorithms are being developed and decision support systems are coming to help every day work. The opportunity of a citizen to produce and use information relating to work health and safety and to obtain necessary information and services is essential. The citizen is no more a passive object of service but an active producer and utilizer of information for taking care of his own well-being and work ability.
