Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) professionals highlight the strong and weak points of prevention services across different European countries in a new discussion paper.  The paper provides an expert perspective to the current debate about the role of internal and external prevention services in ensuring compliance with OSH regulations.

It also suggests improvements to preventive services, including more harmonisation of education and training of professionals throughout Europe, the involvement of OSH generalists and specialists within organisations, and more investment in academic research and data accessibility. 

Information was gathered from health and safety professionals who are part of the European Network of Safety and Health Professional Associations (ENSHPO).
