Today's working life in the production industry is facing major changes and challenges. These changes often place great demands on the knowledge and competence of the individual employee, at the same time as the employee needs to be flexible in the performance of his or her work. Mental illness is increasing in society, and some of it seems to be work-related. Psychosocial problems challenge the society as those costs in Sweden are about 150 - 200 billion SEK per year, of which almost 50 billion counts for large companies, constituting about 20-25 percent of the total salary costs for all companies in Sweden. The COVID-19 pandemic has also increased pressure on people, working at home with physical isolation from colleagues. Therefore, companies' metrics and efforts to achieve long-term and sustainable health for employees become important. Although, companies invest relatively large amounts of resources in their employees’ health and work environment, there is often a lack of a follow-up of metrics, as well as effects these have on the companies' finances and sustainability.

The aim is also to develop knowledge and competence about which metrics, and initiatives are important for sustainable work-related health, and about the effects these metrics, and initiatives can have on employees 'health and on companies' finances and sustainability. The project will be run together with companies that, among other things, operate in the production industry and companies that develop digital solutions. The shared research questions are thus:

  • How can digital solutions be designed to achieve learning and support for sustainable working life and work-related health of employee in the industrial workplace?
  • What effects can be achieved with the introduction of digital solutions for sustainable working life and work-related health in the industrial workplace?
