EU-OSHA is convinced that occupational safety and health has to play a key role if the objectives in the Europe 2020 strategy are to be achieved. Better occupational safety and health can make a significant contribution to increasing the employment rate from the current 69 per cent to the 75 per cent set as the target for 2020. It is well-documented that sick leave and early retirement can be reduced by preventing health and safety risks at the workplace. In 2013 we aim at adopting a new EU-OSHA Strategy covering the years 2014-2020.
