Public hearing - Social dialogue as a tool to promote health and safety at work
The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) organised a virtual public hearing on 17th November to discuss how social dialogue can promote occupational safety and health.
Stakeholders from all levels (national and European institutions, agencies, social partners, and civil society organisations) were invited to share their views and recommendations on this crucial topic. This includes social partners' agreements negotiated on occupational safety and health, joint guidelines on promoting positive wellbeing at work, measures to prevent illnesses, exposure to dangerous substances, and workplace accidents.
EU-OSHA's project manager Xabier Irastorza took part in one of the panels to discuss the EU Strategic Framework on Health and Safety at Work 2021-2027.
