Within the context of the EC funded IPA Action 2020-2022, EU-OSHA organised the second webinar for the IPA Focal points (Western Balkans Countries and Türkiye) on the topic of occupational safety and health (OSH) in agriculture.
The idea of this webinar was to exchange knowledge on OSH in agriculture between EU-OSHA and the IPA beneficiaries to respectively introduce the latest EU OSH knowledge and project outcomes, and in particular to present the "Review of the future of agriculture and occupational safety and health (OSH)", and to better understand the state of play at a national level on this topic. A representative from the Slovenian forestry institute and agriculture extension service shared with the participants the Slovenian experience.
The event started with an opening speech by Christa Sedlatschek, Executive Director of EU-OSHA. It brought together representatives from six IPA beneficiaries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia and Türkiye), representatives of the regional International Labour Organization offices, EU Delegations and the South-East Europe Network on Workers' Health.
