Protecting workers in the online platform economy: An overview of regulatory and policy developments in the EU

This report sets out to describe the potential occupational safety and health (OSH) risks that have been identified in relation to online platform work, to highlight the challenges for current regulatory approaches on OSH and to present examples of different approaches that are under way or being developed to meet these challenges. Given this, this report does not pretend to give a verdict on whether online platform work is 'good' or 'bad' and indeed it mentions, as well as the potential risks, the potential benefits, such as reducing the extent of undeclared work.
