European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER)

EU-OSHA’s European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER) is an extensive survey that looks at how European workplaces manage safety and health risks in practice.

Thousands of businesses and organisations across Europe are asked to respond to a questionnaire that focuses on:
  • General safety and health risks in the workplace and how they are managed
  • Psychosocial risks, such as stress, bullying and harassment
  • Drivers of and barriers to OSH management
  • Worker participation in safety and health practices.

The results from these interviews are complemented by secondary analyses involving a series of in-depth studies that focus on specific topics. Quantitative and qualitative research methodologies are applied in these studies to help better understand the main findings from the survey.
