New country reports explore approaches to safety and health in MSEs across the EU

EU-OSHA’s latest country reports examine occupational safety and health (OSH) arrangements in micro and small enterprises (MSEs), from different economic sectors, in nine EU Member States: Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Italy, Romania, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

One set of country reports examines OSH experiences from the worker and owner-manager perspectives, uncovering prevalent OSH attitudes and motivations. The other set provides an overview of how OSH can be supported in MSEs, by intermediaries, authorities and OSH institutions, exploring what works and what doesn’t in different national and socio-economic contexts.   

Accompanying PowerPoint presentations give an overview of EU-OSHA’s wider MSE project, and how the findings could contribute to the development of effective OSH policies and strategies for MSEs, Europe’s most vulnerable enterprises.
