A new era for worker protection — launch of the EU OSH Strategic Framework 2021-2027


On 28 June, the European Commission officially launches its ambitious new Strategic Framework on Health and Safety at Work, with the goal of keeping workers safe and healthy in a rapidly changing world of work.

Its focus is clear: anticipating and managing change, improving the prevention of workplace accidents and illnesses, and increasing preparedness for potential future health crises.

As COVID-19, digitalisation and the green transition bring unprecedented changes to the nature of work and where and how we do it, the new framework aims to mobilise EU institutions, Member States, social partners and other stakeholders around these key priorities.

EU-OSHA will play a vital role in implementing the framework by facilitating action, cooperation and exchange among its extensive network of partners, and supporting a prevention culture in workplaces across the EU and beyond.
