Do you work with dangerous substances or manage people who do? Do you need more information on how to assess and manage the risks? If so, have a look at EU-OSHA’s comprehensive database on practical tools and guidance on dangerous substances, with links to key resources and audiovisual tools from Member States, EU and beyond. It includes several new case studies created for the current Healthy Workplaces Campaign, which provide real-life examples of good practice in dealing with dangerous substances.


This summary outlines what experts had to say at the high-level conference ‘When size matters … the way forward in improving occupational safety and health in Europe’s micro and small enterprises (MSEs)’.

Participants included Commissioner Thyssen, members of the project team and many other key stakeholders. They discussed the main findings and potential future impact of EU-OSHA’s ‘SESAME’ project (for ‘Safe Small and Micro Enterprises’).


On 22 October, EU-OSHA, alongside its partners, sets the wheels in motion for the European Week for Safety and Health at Work to encourage participative and active safety management of dangerous substances.

A major milestone of the current Healthy Workplaces Campaign, the week inspires hundreds of events all over Europe, such as film screenings, social media events, conferences, exhibitions, competitions and training sessions.
