The launch of the 2018-19 Campaign — Healthy Workplaces Manage Dangerous Substances — is fast approaching. EU-OSHA’s campaign partnership meeting in Brussels on 20 March brings together European and international organisations and companies and media partners who would like to become campaign partners or renew their partnership.

The event is the ideal opportunity for them to network and exchange ideas on how they will actively promote the objectives of the campaign through their activities.


On #WorldCancerDay, join us in raising awareness of cancer — the leading cause of work-related deaths in the EU – and the importance of its prevention.

EU-OSHA has recently held a seminar on rehabilitation and return to work after cancer. Good policies in this area are vital to help cancer survivors return successfully to work.


How to ensure workers’ safety and health in micro and small enterprises (MSEs) is top of the agenda for leading safety and health experts and policy-makers at a seminar hosted by EU-OSHA.

Commissioner Marianne Thyssen discusses, with EU-OSHA’s Governing Board and other relevant stakeholders, the latest findings of the MSE project, now available in two comprehensive reports.


With the New Year, the “Healthy Workplaces Manage Dangerous Substances” campaign is knocking on the door. The campaign is devoted to raising awareness of dangerous substances and promoting a prevention culture in workplaces across Europe.

EU-OSHA will launch this 2018-2019 campaign in spring. We hope that all our campaign partners and stakeholders will support it as powerfully as they advocated the latest one, “Healthy Workplaces for All Ages”.

The ‘Risk assessment with OiRA in 4 steps’ video produced within the framework of the Online interactive Risk Assessment (OiRA) project has been released in English with subtitles.

The 2018-19 campaign aims at raising awareness of the risks posed by dangerous substances in the workplace and promoting a culture of risk prevention to eliminate or effectively manage these risks.

The Healthy Workplaces Summit in Bilbao, Spain, concludes EU-OSHA’s 2016-17 Healthy Workplaces for All Ages campaign.

With record numbers of campaign partners, this campaign has been highly successful.

Leading experts in the occupational safety and health field and political decision makers gather to reflect on the achievements and share good practice, as well as legal and policy solutions identified throughout the 2-year campaign, aimed at tackling the challenges facing the ageing European workforce.


The rapid growth of the online platform economy is resulting in an increase in non-standard forms of work, such as casual work, on-call work and dependent self-employment. While on-line platforms can increase opportunities to access work; platform work may result in physical and psychosocial occupational safety and health (OSH) risks for workers.

A new report looks at these challenges and examines the policies and regulations in place or being developed — in Member States and at EU level — to address the risks.
