Dangerous substances continue to pose risks to the safety and health of Europe’s workers. Raising awareness of the need to eliminate exposure to these substances — and manage them where that’s not possible — is the focus of the new campaign Healthy Workplaces Manage Dangerous Substances. The campaign is being launched at a press conference in Brussels on 24 April 2018 at 12.00.
The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) has launched its 2018-19 EU-wide campaign, Healthy Workplaces Manage Dangerous Substances. The launch marks the start of two years of events and activities aimed at drawing attention to the issue and promoting the best ways of tackling the risks that dangerous substances pose to workers.
A new study by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) has reviewed the risks to workers when opening fumigated shipping containers. The study identifies significant gaps in preventive measures and makes recommendations that should be implemented to improve the safety and health of workers.
