Norway – Analysing emerging risks affecting workplaces
From workplace accidents to psychosocial factors such as stress, workers are exposed to a range of different risks in the working environment. To understand more about the potential impact of these risks, the Norwegian national focal point, in collaboration with EU-OSHA, is organising a webinar to review the results of the 2019 European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER).
EU-OSHA’s Project Manager, Dr. Xabier Irastorza, presents the key findings of this unique survey which gives insights into the design and implementation of new policies in the field of occupational safety and health. The survey has been adapted to Norwegian conditions so that the data can be included in the national authorities’ work to monitor the working situation in Norway and as a basis for prioritising preventive actions.
Taking place online with around 50 participants, the webinar is aimed at ministries, social partners and relevant stakeholders.
