On September 25, 2019, the Training Centre of the National Labour Inspectorate in Wrocław became the venue of the international conference, entitled “Opportunities and challenges for the labour world in the 4.0 era”, organized as part of the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the National Labour Inspectorate. Inelo experts also took part in the event, presenting during breaks TachoScanControl software, which is also used by NLI inspectors.

The event celebrating the 100th anniversary of NLI, hosted by Chief Labour Inspector Wiesław Łyszczek, gathered heads and experts of labour inspection authorities from nearly 17 European Union countries. Among the guests were representatives of the Senior Labour Inspectors Committee, the International Association of Labour Inspection, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, as well as the International Labour Organization.

The conference was divided into two thematic blocks, which touched upon the role of modern technologies in the context of work safety, as well as human issues in a constantly changing work environment. It was an opportunity for everyone gathered to discuss the challenges presented by the need of labour protection in the 4.0 era, so that, the role of a man is not overlooked when entering the industry of the future.

One of many speakers, Iwona Hadacz, Deputy Director of the Human Resources and Training Department of the Chief Labour Inspectorate, read a letter from the Speaker of the Sejm, emphasizing the multi-generational activities that lead to the National Labour Inspectorate being today a modern office that has an undeniable impact on the development of the country. The innovative nature is also evidenced by the fact that inspectors, for a long time now, have been using advanced software for controlling drivers’ work and settling working time records – TachoScan Control, which allows, among others, calculate the remuneration due to the employee based on data from smart tachographs. The widely discussed topic of the 4.0 era was also an opportunity to talk to our experts – Mateusz Włoch and Michał Franczyk about their view of the changes taking place in the transport, forwarding and logistic sector. It cannot be denied that the 4.0 era will have an impact on the way labour inspectorates work, and the current activities of the National Labour Inspectorate confirm the readiness to adapt to the upcoming changes.
