New technologies reshaping the workplace include: data processing capabilities, connectivity of devices and services, advanced robotics, nanotechnologies, a world of wearable devices, the internet of things, artificial intelligence, and virtual/augmented reality. Use of these advances raises occupational safety and health as well as ethical concerns about potential abuse of the embedded sensing and intelligence placed into every device. The NIOSH Center for Direct Reading and Sensor Technologies was established to coordinate research and develop recommendations on the use of new technologies in occupational safety and health. In 2017, NIOSH proposed an ethical framework for decision making regarding employee workplace monitoring. Recognizing that new technologies are rapidly changing the workplace, in January 2018, the National Occupational Research Agenda Manufacturing Sector Council identified examination of the impact of new technologies as one of its goals for the 2016-2026 decade. This session will the examine the rationale and specific needs towards decision-making, implementation and evaluation of the use of new technologies. A decision-making road map will be proposed to develop an ethical framework to define needs, identify technological solutions, and evaluate effectiveness.
