Time pressure, prolonged sitting, loud noise and dealing with difficult pupils and parents – workers in education are daily exposed to a range of significant musculoskeletal and psychosocial risk factors, an ESENER study reveals.

The need for a stronger occupational safety and health (OSH) management response in the sector brings together on 26 April EU-OSHA experts, European Commission representatives and EU social partners to debate online the study's key findings

The workshop is centered around data from three waves of the European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER) as well as findings from expert interviews with sectoral stakeholders. The event will specifically focus on how to address the gaps in risk assessments arising from the transformation of teaching due to digitalisation and the impact of COVID-19.
