According to a report by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), mental health problems (primarily stress, anxiety and depression) and musculoskeletal disorders are the priorities at present and will still be so tomorrow. Lung and respiratory problems are also a concern.

These findings are the result of a multiple approach: targeted consultation of the stakeholders, examination of recent documentation, analysis of conclusive data, statistics on health at work and prospective work regarding the future, and gathering the viewpoints of people having medical, healthcare, scientific and regulatory expertise. This should enable the HSE to maximize its impact on the improvement of occupational health within the framework of its strategic priorities defined in 2016.
