EU-OSHA and partners


The 2022 European Week for Safety and Health at Work will be again raising awareness about the Healthy Workplaces Campaign 20-22, running since October 2020. With the topic: Healthy Workplaces Lighten the Load, the campaign tackles the prevention of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

The campaign is putting the focus on different "priority areas" within the wide topic of MSDs, and until now several pirority areas have gathered a variety of resources, such as info sheets, infographics, presentations, reports, OSHwiki articles and many more. Many news articles are also being published highlighting different angles of these priority areas. Psychosocial risks will be the last priority area to be launched and promoted from September to November 2022.

EU-OSHA collaborates with an extensive network of national focal pointsofficial campaign partnersmedia partners and OSH ambassadors from the Enterprise Europe Network. They work together to raise awareness during the European Week, organising many events, including conferences, competitions, training sessions, exhibitions and networking and good practice events, both online and onsite (COVID-19 pandemic permitting). In 2022 partners can focus the European Week on any of the priority areas or on any other interesting topic for the prevention of MSDs. 

There are lots of ways to get involved in the campaign.

Pencil the 2022 European Week on your diary and celebrate with EU-OSHA and its partners!
