A selection of the main findings from ESENER-2, the second edition of EU-OSHA’s flagship European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks, is now available.
Almost 50,000 businesses across Europe were surveyed on aspects of occupational safety and health (OSH), focusing on psychosocial risks and OSH management.
Respondents answered questions on the major risk factors in their enterprises and reported on how and why they manage them, as well as identifying barriers to prevention.
The report evaluates current assessment methods and highlights gaps in our present knowledge of occupational cancer risk factors and work-related cancer. It also provides recommendations on how we can fill these gaps to help us move closer to preventive measures.
World Cancer Day 2015 (4 February) is focused on raising awareness of detection, treatment and care. This report is a step towards improving both awareness and knowledge of occupational cancer.
‘Psychosocial risks in Europe: Prevalence and strategies for prevention’ – Summary available in 25 languages
This executive summary is based on a joint report on psychosocial risks at work from EU-OSHA and Eurofound, targeting policy-makers and advisers, OSH professionals, and employers’ and workers’ representatives.
The report gives a broad overview on psychosocial risks at European workplaces and gives examples on the way forward at political as well as company level —all illustrated with real-life examples and case studies.
Psychosocial risks can occur in every workplace, and the quality of any workplace is significantly associated with the level of stress experienced by workers.
