Changes in working practices and the move towards precarious working

There are indications that changes in working practices, eg increases in virtual working, homeworking, teleworking, part-time working, 24 hour working, and any trends toward increases in temporary or insecure work, may be associated with a deterioration in occupational health and safety (OHS) in terms of injury rates, disease risk, stress, hazard exposures, or worker (and manager) knowledge of OHS and regulatory responsibilities.
