EU-OSHA’s annual report outlines its major activities in 2016. To give just a few examples, last year, EU-OSHA published findings from the latest edition of the European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER-2) focusing on occupational safety and health (OSH) in general, psychosocial risks in particular, workers’ involvement in OSH management and the main drivers and barriers to action.
Multilingualism is fundamental for the European Union and one of EU-OSHA’s main drivers as a recognised leader in promoting safe and healthy workplaces in Europe.
The joint analysis report covers three major European surveys and provides an in-depth picture of how safety and health is managed in Europe’s workplaces. This comprehensive overview combines the perspectives of establishments -on risk management and risk awareness-, and those of workers -on exposure to risks and occupational safety and health (OSH) outcomes-.

EU-OSHA has published a report under its current foresight activity. The project is looking at how changes in information and communication technologies and work location will affect occupational safety and health (OSH).
The report presents the results of the first phase of the project. The aim was to identify and describe key trends and drivers of these changes. The findings will be used in phase 2 to develop a set of scenarios describing possible and plausible visions of the world of work in 2025 and the associated OSH challenges.
