On 19 June, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) hosts a high-level conference in Brussels to explore the way forward in improving occupational safety and health (OSH) in Europe’s small businesses. The event builds on the findings of EU-OSHA’s project examining OSH in micro and small enterprises (MSEs) and coincides with the publication of the project’s final analysis report, which details the main factors influencing OSH in MSEs and provides recommendations for good practice and support for policy development.
Managing occupational safety and health (OSH) can be a big challenge for micro and small enterprises (MSEs).
What policies, programmes and tools are most effective to improve OSH in MSEs? And how can businesses be helped to make these work in practice?
EU-OSHA, with policy makers and social partners, provides answers at a high-level conference in Brussels, focusing on evidence-based recommendations from the most recent and wide-ranging MSE project reports.

A new report analysing findings of the second European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER-2) takes a broad view of European occupational safety and health (OSH) practice. The report highlights that, although traditional occupational safety risks are largely well addressed across Europe, health and psychosocial risks are not as well managed. There is a need to expand current trends to more comprehensively address health and psychosocial risks as part of good OSH practice.
