 • to increase visibility and awareness about the impact organizational or psychosocial risks may have on the occurrence of accidents at work in the sector.

 • to provide policy-makers, social partners, OSH practitioners and researchers with a better understanding and a comprehensive, cross-national insight on the state of the art of work-related accidents in the sector in general and more specifically on risk prevention;

• to contribute to identify gaps in terms of research and knowledge when it comes to the prevention of work-related accidents in the sector.
