First findings from the Second European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER-2)

Feb 09, 2015

The second edition of EU-OSHA’s Europe-wide survey of enterprises, ESENER-2, collected responses from almost 50,000 enterprises on OSH management and workplace risks, with a particular focus on psychosocial risks, worker participation, and drivers and barriers to action. The aim is to provide nationally comparable data to help in policy-making and assist workplaces to deal with risks more effectively. This initial analysis presents a selection of the results.

2015 Annual Management Plan

Dec 18, 2014

The 2015 management plan is the second annual management plan under EU-OSHA’s Multi-annual Strategic Programme 2014-2020. One of the key aims is to ensure that occupational safety and health remains a priority issue – also in the current situation of economic and financial crisis, in line with the Framework Directive (89/391/EEC): “the improvement of workers' safety, hygiene and health at work is an objective which should not be subordinated to purely economic considerations.”

Exposure to carcinogens and work-related cancer: a review of assessment methods.

Dec 15, 2014

Estimates of the recent and future burden of occupational diseases indicate that occupational cancer is still a major problem and will remain so in the future as a result of exposure of workers to carcinogens. Occupational cancer is a problem that needs to be tackled across the European Union (EU). This report provides an overview of assessment tools for the exposure to cancer risk factors and looks into relevant occupational factors: chemical, physical and biological exposures, as well as other possibly carcinogenic working environment conditions (such as shift and night work). It also examines opportunities to identify new causes or promoters of cancer, and evaluates existing sources of information, to identify major knowledge gaps and describe some new approaches needed to assess and prevent occupational cancer risks. It also describes occupational cancer prevention measures at European, national and workplace levels and makes recommendations for filling in gaps in relevant knowledge needed to prevent effectively future risks of occupational cancer. The issue of vulnerable groups of workers (for example women, young workers, workers experiencing high exposure to carcinogens, workers in precarious conditions) is also addressed.
