The ETUI has devoted a report to occupational risks related to the use of internet and mobile technologies. At present, work on a tablet, computer or mobile phone is increasingly prevalent. These tools have made it possible to work without any constraints of place or time, thus providing workers with greater independence and greater flexibility. But, at the same time, the boundary between working life and private life has been blurred, contributing to the development of psychosocial risks (PSR) such as burn-out and physical risks such as MSD.
