Seminar reports

As part of our mission to raise awareness and share information, good practice and advice with a wide range of audiences, we organise many events throughout the year. They range from small seminars that bring together our stakeholders with occupational safety and health experts to present and debate the findings from our publications, to events at Member State level co-organised with our focal points, symposia at large international conferences such as the World Congress, or our European Summits, which mark the end of our Healthy Workplace Campaigns.

Even at our largest events, we cannot possibly invite everyone who would be interested, so the aim of this section is to offer you the opportunity to participate ‘virtually’: you will find the presentations made by the speakers, a summary of the discussions that took place after each presentation, and the overall conclusions from the event. Wherever our resources allow, the summaries are presented in all EU official languages.
