Description

In 2017 Osalan, the Basque Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, with the support of Emakunde, the Basque Womens Institute, developed a gender-sensitive risk-prevention toolkit with the aim of raising awareness among all workers, employers and prevention service experts of the sexual (biological) and gender (cultural) differences between men and women, so that they can be taken into account when developing and implementing occupational risk prevention activities.

La integración de la perspectiva de género en la prevención de riesgos laborales pasa necesariamente por investigar las áreas relevantes para las mujeres trabajadoras, que hasta ahora no han sido abordadas de forma suficiente, no subestimar los riesgos laborales a los que se exponen, reducir su falta de participación en las decisiones sobre salud laboral y garantizar que las medidas preventivas adoptadas sean apropiadas.
