Associate Professor of the Future of Work
University of Leicester
This presentation deals with the new questions we should ask when integrating technology into workplaces and spaces. The positive potentials for AI integration, automation and computational sophistication are counterbalanced with the danger of detrimental impacts of workplace monitoring and automation, which are now difficult to repudiate.
Local responses extract from existing labour, occupational safety and health, data protection and privacy regulations. Indeed, there is no single regulation nor policy available which can cover all areas that are at risk, although the AI Act is an important gesture toward harmonisation.
Dr Phoebe Moore will look at arising Occupational Safety & Health (OSH) issues and regulation, alongside labour protection, data, and privacy arenas, as a way to mitigate against the difficulties emerging in work and people analytics today, where AI becomes an increasingly interesting force.
People analytics practitioners know that there are arising risks for workers when technologies and their competencies are considered actors in workplaces and spaces. Dr Moore will help to identify what risks emerge, e.g. in OSH arenas, and aid in thinking through not just the basics of compliance, but about the psychosocial experiences of workers themselves, and how to source the best regulation, policy and social protections to ensure good practice is normalised.
This session will explore:
- AI in people analytics
- Occupational safety and health
- Data and privacy protection
- Labour protection.
- Awareness of OSH in digitalised workplaces/spaces, including psychosocial risks
- Knowledge about regulation and policy to protect workers
- Commitment to psychosocial safety and health.
