As our pilot project on the safety and health of older workers draws to a close, the agency is presenting key findings to the European Parliament and publishing a number of reports on occupational safety and health (OSH) in the context of an ageing EU workforce.
The 2016 European Week for Safety and Health at Work - 24 to 28 October - a key part of the Healthy Workplaces for All Ages Campaign, starts today. Through the hundreds of events taking place across Europe this week, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) and its network of partners stress the importance of ensuring safe and healthy conditions throughout working life.
For various reasons, Europe’s micro and small enterprises (MSEs) are most at risk of workplace accidents and ill-health compared with their larger counterparts. So, with the aim of improving occupational safety and health (OSH) in these enterprises, EU-OSHA launched a project looking to identify success factors of policies, strategies and practical solutions. The results of the first phase of this project have been published and a seminar was held for stakeholders to discuss the findings.
