Why to invest in occupational safety and health?
‘Protecting employees’ health and safety is a moral and legal imperative’, EU-OSHA’s Director Dr Christa Sedlatschek says in an article published in the Financial Times. ‘In Europe we can be proud, our working conditions are the best in the world, but there is a lot that we need to do’, Dr Sedlatschek continues. She emphasises on the need for adequate policies to ensure a manageable workload, good staff relations and proper training as they have great impact for all staff.
Further on, Dr Sedlatschek explains the goals of the Healthy Workplaces Campaigns and speaks about the ways EU-OSHA manages the challenges related to workplace safety and health.
