Safety in movement: Mobile workers, mobile media

Pink S, Morgan J & Dainty A (2014) Safety in movement: Mobile workers, mobile media. Mobile Media and Communication, 2 (3), pp. 335-351.

Mobile and locative digital media are an inextricable part of everyday working environments, are part of everyday work practices in organizations, and are part of organizational infrastructures. Likewise occupational safety and health (OSH) in many ways underpins the ways that people work in organizations. Yet the relationship of OSH to media, and to the ways in which people are mobile while at work, has remained underexplored in academic scholarship. In this article we take the novel step of bringing together the fields of mobile media, phenomenological anthropology, and OSH to ask how they might mutually inform each other.
