European Agency for Safety and Health at Work
Making Europe a safer, healthier and more productive place to work
With less than a month to go before the official launch of the new Healthy Workplaces Campaign, EU-OSHA is calling on international and European organisations and companies to join the 2014-15 HWC Partnership meeting, which takes place on 8th of April in Brussels.
The event will see the contributions of leading European businesses, workers’ and employers’ organisations, and the interventions of European occupational safety and health experts. During the meeting the new Official Campaign Partnership Offer will be presented, featuring new opportunities for Partners such as the new dedicated OCP Good Practice Award at European level, and more networking and learning- exchange opportunities, such as the Benchmarking initiatives.
European and international organisations and companies are invited to join a forum of leading public and private organisations to discuss how to get involved in the 2014-15 Campaign, and effectively manage stress and psychosocial risks in the workplace.

The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) is conducting a survey to obtain feedback on its activities and the results achieved. Please help us to do this by completing this short questionnaire, which will take you no more than 15 minutes. The survey is being carried out for EU-OSHA by the UK research institute, the Institute for Employment Studies (IES).
The survey can be completed in all official EU languages as well as Icelandic and Norwegian. Please tell us what you think about our campaigns, publications, website and information dissemination.
Originally called International Working Women's Day, 8th of March has been celebrated for more than 100 years to recognise the role of women and their contributions to society.
Women make up 45% of the employed population in the European Union. But still too many workplaces are designed with a typical male worker in mind.
A 'gender sensitive' approach to health and safety at work is needed to make the working lives of women healthier, safe and more productive.
In the last months, several new tools have been published in OiRA. This takes the total number of online interactive risk assessment (OiRA) tools available to 15. The new tools cover different sectors including hairdressing, catering and private security. They have been developed in several countries including Belgium, Spain, Lithuania and Greece and by EU social partners.
This is one step forward on the way to putting OiRA at the centre of strategies for risk prevention. Around another 50 more tools are currently under development.
EU-OSHA’s next Healthy Workplaces Campaign 2014-2015 ‘Managing stress and psychosocial risks at work’ starts in April 2014.
