EU-OSHA presents an interactive infographic created to support the Healthy Workplaces Manage Dangerous Substances campaign.
The infographic allows users to discover facts and figures on the risks that dangerous substances pose to workers and the benefits of managing those risks. It’s user-friendly and covers key messages, such as the dangers of carcinogens in the workplace and the risks posed to specific groups of workers.
Do you work with dangerous substances or manage people who do? Do you need more information on how to assess and manage the risks? If so, have a look at EU-OSHA’s comprehensive database on practical tools and guidance on dangerous substances, with links to key resources and audiovisual tools from Member States, EU and beyond. It includes several new case studies created for the current Healthy Workplaces Campaign, which provide real-life examples of good practice in dealing with dangerous substances.
Each year, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) and its partners mark the European Week for Safety and Health at Work with awareness-raising events across the EU and beyond. This year’s theme, at the heart of an exciting range of activities from 22 to 26 October, is managing dangerous substances in the workplace.
