Keywords: digitalization, industry 4.0, labor protection management system, SWOT-analysis, digitization.


The business community and governments around the world are aware of the need to accelerate the process of digitalization and digital transformation of the economy in order to achieve a competitive position in the digital space of the new world economy, including in the field of occupational safety management (SWOP). The mechanism of digitalization in OSH remains insufficiently studied, which necessitates the development of tools for its implementation, evaluation and management.

The benefits of digitalization for industrial safety are incredibly high: it is easier to manage resources, and quick access to more information about the use of personal protective equipment, training, medical examination, etc., the formation of digital culture.

The purpose of this research was to consider the prospects and problems of implementation of information technology in the field of occupational safety, identify features of industrial enterprise management in the context of digitalization. To achieve this goal, the method of SWOT-analysis was used.

The study revealed some problems in the implementation of digitalization in the management system of labor protection. The spread of digital technologies in all sectors of the economy and vital spheres of society actualizes the study of the degree of readiness for change, which involves monitoring the state of occupational safety. Transformations in the labor market and ensuring the safety of the production process are associated with job losses, the emergence of new professions and changes in the competencies of employees. Digitalization is aimed at the introduction of adaptive practices of professional development, the development of motivation in the implementation of all instructions on occupational safety.
