Who we are
The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) is committed to making Europe a safer, healthier and more productive place to work. We promote a culture of risk prevention to improve working conditions in Europe
What we do
We raise awareness and disseminate information on the importance of worker’s health and safety for European social and economic stability and growth.
We design and develop hands-on instruments for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises to help them assess their workplace risks, share knowledge and good practices on safety and health within their reach and beyond.
We work side-by-side with governments, employers’ and workers’ organisations, EU bodies and networks, and private companies. Our voice is multiplied by occupational safety and health network represented by a dedicated focal point in all EU Member States, EFTA countries and candidate and potential candidate countries.
We identify and assess new and emerging risks at work, and mainstream occupational safety and health into other policy areas such as education, public health and research.
