The EU 2023 report, which focuses on how the EU have tackled the issues that concern Europeans most across last year, has been released. 

The Building a fair and social Europe chapter of the report refers to key occupational safety and health (OSH) steps towards better workers’ protection. These are the provisional agreements between the European Parliament and the Council to lower the exposure limits for lead to a fifth of the current limit value, and the EU amended legislation to significantly lower the occupational exposure limit for asbestos.

The report also highlights the European Year of Skills as a strong push for greater participation in lifelong learning and for developing skills and attracting talent to boost the EU’s competitiveness.
