Napo is the hero in a series of short animated films on important occupational safety and health (OSH) topics, produced by the Napo Consortium. The films are lighthearted but thought provoking and their messages are serious.

Napo and his colleagues communicate in a wordless language. This means that the films can reach out to people of all ages and cultures across Europe and help spread OSH messages.

On 5 June, EU-OSHA hosted a gathering to mark 25 years of working together with its partners for a safer, healthier and more productive Europe.

There was a truly special atmosphere as EU-OSHA’s network came together for speeches and discussions, looking back at EU-OSHA’s history and forward to its future.

We’d like to thank everyone who attended and made it such a special occasion.

Though primarily intended for micro and small enterprises, multinational car manufacturer Daimler has developed and adapted a workplace risk assessment tool for company specific use on the basis of EU-OSHA’s OiRA. The OiRA platform was originally developed to provide EU-OSHA’s national partners (such as Ministries or Labour Inspectorates) with occupational safety and health risk assessment tools that are sector specific and tailored to national contexts.
