Report - Gender issues in safety and health at work
Achieving gender equality in all aspects of employment is now a key European priority. It is a matter of rights, but it is also a matter of sound economic policy — especially considering the human and economic costs of injuries and ill health caused or made worse by work. The report highlights the dual importance of considering gender in risk prevention and including occupational safety and health in gender equality employment activities. Cooperation between these two policy areas is crucial, from the European level, down to the workplace, to promote improved workplace risk prevention for both women and men.
