Vulnerable workers and dangerous substances: Info sheet now available in several languages

Workplace risk assessment and prevention measures for dangerous substances need to target groups of workers with specific needs and higher levels of risk. These groups include inexperienced or uninformed workers, such as young or temporary workers, as well as those who are physically more vulnerable, such as pregnant workers.

EU-OSHA’s info sheet on vulnerable workers and dangerous substances is now available in 11 languages. It explains employers’ responsibilities, highlights which groups of workers are particularly vulnerable, and explains how to take account of their needs through risk assessment and prevention measures.
