OSH Management in the Human health and social work activities - what are European workplaces telling us?
Given the importance of the sector and the specific occupational safety and health (OSH) risks that its workers face, in 2021 the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) carried out a follow-up sectoral study of the European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER). The main aims were to analyse the sector data from the three waves of the ESENER surveys (2009, 2014 and 2019) to gain an overview of trends over time in OSH management in general, and psychosocial risks in particular, as well as the main drivers and barriers to OSH management in the sector and worker participation in OSH. With the aim to present the main findings of the study on the human health and social work activities sector, EUOSHA organised a webinar on 4 May 2022: ‘OSH management in the Human health and social work – what are European workplaces telling us?’. Experts from EU-OSHA, European Commission representatives and EU sectoral social partners presented at the webinar, which gathered over 60 participants. ESENER provided comparable information across countries, sectors and business size classes on the management of OSH, including psychosocial risks, the main drivers and barriers to managing OSH, and how workers are involved practically in the management of OSH.
