European Agency for Safety and Health at Work
Making Europe a safer, healthier and more productive place to work
A conference summary is now available for the ‘Benchmarking and exchange of good practices in OSH’ event, an opportunity for companies to compare knowledge in health and safety practices. The four workshops that were held include: learning from accidents, OSH leadership, safety and health culture, and OSH performance indicators.
The success of the Online interactive Risk Assessment project (OiRA) is not only reflected in the number of national partners already involved (15). In addition, several EU sectoral social dialogue committees have taken advantage of the unique possibilities offered by OiRA.
As part of EU-OSHA’s Healthy Workplaces Manage Stress Campaign, the Agency brought together, at a ceremony presided by EU Commissioner Marianne Thyssen and EU-OSHA director Christa Sedlatschek, over 100 other official campaign partners who have been implementing measures to reduce psychosocial risks and stress in the workplace.
For over 100 years, International Women´s day has celebrated the economic, political and social achievements of women from all around the world and promoted a greater gender equality. Women make up 45% of the employed population in the European Union, but still too many workplaces are designed with a male worker in mind. A 'gender sensitive' approach to OSH matters is needed to make the working lives of women healthier, safer and more productive.
Psychosocial risks can occur in every workplace, and the quality of any workplace is significantly associated with the level of stress experienced by workers.
