Foresight Centre - emerging health and safety issues

We use horizon scanning, knowledge sharing and a range of futures activities to enable HSE and the broader health and safety system to anticipate and keep pace with change.

This year HSE's Foresight Centre Report brings together a selection of the most significant issues affecting the workplace of the future, identified from our Foresight Centre's horizon 'scanning activities over the past twelve months.

Foresight Annual Reports series


HSE futures scenarios can be used in various ways - e.g. to test the plausibility of future changes and consider the potential impact on occupational safety and health in your organisation or area of interest.
