Napo steps in to help promote the International Social Security Association’s (ISSA’s) ‘7 golden rules — for zero accidents and healthy work’. The rules are part of the Vision Zero global campaign which EU-OSHA supports.

Napo and colleagues feature in a short video promoting each of the seven rules in a light-hearted way. The rules start right at the top with leadership commitment and work down to improving workers’ qualifications and investing in people.

EU-OSHA in cooperation with the International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film (DOK Leipzig 2019) looks for best films on work-related topics and working conditions that address the human being in a changing world of work. The award in the “Healthy Workplaces” category has been continuously presented since 2009, thus 2019 marks 10 years since its first introduction.


As EU-OSHA celebrates 25 years of promoting safe and healthy workplaces across Europe, it recognises that one key to its success is undoubtedly its staff: expert, committed and passionate.

Based in the award-winning city of Bilbao, EU-OSHA is informally known as ‘the Bilbao Agency’, reflecting its deep and mutually beneficial links with the city.

According to the 2018 Stakeholders’ Satisfaction Survey results, EU-OSHA maintains a high level of work performance, with satisfaction levels even higher than those in 2016. 89% of stakeholders say that EU-OSHA addresses the right priorities in the field of occupational safety and health (OSH) and 87% report that EU-OSHA adds value to the work by national OSH organisations. The respondents include mainly workplace intermediaries and policy makers, inside and outside the EU, with 86% coming from EU Member States.
