Costs of poor OSH - Towards an EU-28 estimate

‘This report describes the proceedings of the technical meeting that brought together experts to explore the way forward towards estimating the costs of poor occupational safety and health at the EU-28 level. The meeting built on EU-OSHA’s project ‘Estimating the cost of accidents and ill health at work – A review of methodologies´ (report and executive summary translated into eight languages available at: /en/topics/business-aspects-of-osh). The aim of the expert meeting was to discuss the main findings of the project and, based on it, highlight the factors that EU-OSHA should take into account for a European estimate: the existing limitations, the possible ways to overcome them and, generally, what the best methodological approach would be.’

The Seminar Summary is available in the following languages besides English: Danish, Greek, Spanish, Finnish, French, Croatian, Hungarian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Slovakian, German and Dutch
