  • 'Future-proof skills', which are projected to retain their value and resist automation, thereby ensuring their relevance in the forthcoming job market.
Let's have a look at the future of your skills for this job :
At-risk Skills
Control data or document compliance With the growth of automated systems and intelligent databases, some administrative tasks may become obsolete or be performed more efficiently by digital tools.
Control tool certification and compliance The evolution of data analysis, monitoring, and processing tools may make certain aspects of this skill less relevant for a human, as advanced algorithms and systems can quickly process and synthesize large amounts of data.
Future-proof Skills
Pilot a quality initiative, a continuous improvement process The ability to anticipate hazards, develop preventive actions, and manage emergency situations relies on a combination of technical knowledge and human judgment. It is unlikely that this skill will be replaced in the near future.
Coordinate and manage a team The role of raising awareness, facilitating groups, and training others in the HSE field requires interpersonal skills, deep understanding, and the ability to effectively convey knowledge. These skills typically resist automation.
