EU-OSHA’s extensive network of partners and close collaboration with over 30 countries have been instrumental in promoting a risk prevention culture across Europe in the last 25 years.
The app promotes ISSA’s ‘7 golden rules — for zero accidents and healthy work’, is quick and easy to use, and shows the workplace safety and health status of an organisation.
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.
EU-OSHA welcomes its new founding regulation, coming into force on 20 February 2019.
In its 25th anniversary year, the new regulation recognises EU-OSHA’s key role in making Europe a safer and healthier place to work since its foundation in 1994. This new regulation takes account of the rapidly changing world of work and is a clear endorsement of EU-OSHA’s continuing relevance in the future. It is aligned with the regulations of other EU agencies under DG Employment and introduces few substantial changes.
EU-OSHA has teamed up with Europe's hairdressing sector to produce a new video showing how to reduce occupational safety and health risks with the help of OiRA, the Online interactive Risk Assessment tool. The video complements a recently published infographic on risk assessment with OiRA.
EU-OSHA presents an interactive infographic created to support the Healthy Workplaces Manage Dangerous Substances campaign.
The infographic allows users to discover facts and figures on the risks that dangerous substances pose to workers and the benefits of managing those risks. It’s user-friendly and covers key messages, such as the dangers of carcinogens in the workplace and the risks posed to specific groups of workers.
Cancer is a major cause of work-related deaths in Europe. We need reliable and comparable data on workplace exposure to cancer risk factors in Europe to protect workers and fight work-related cancer.
EU-OSHA is therefore pleased to announce on World Cancer Day that its tripartite Governing Board has given the green light to start work in 2020 on a computer-assisted telephone survey to estimate workers’ exposure to cancer risk factors.
Each article describes a different system, its main characteristics, reporting methods, mechanisms to detect new work-related diseases and risks and to raise alerts at various levels, associated costs and how the data collected are used to inform policy and prevention strategies. Interviews with stakeholders of these systems shed light on drivers for and barriers to system implementation, and how each system’s approach could be transferred to other countries.
