Aprašymas

New and unique risks to occupational safety and health (OSH) are constantly emerging. 2020 has seen a drastic change in the working environment due to Covid-19 and the related culture of teleworking, for example. But what is the impact of these new risks, and what are the future OSH challenges workers face?

To answer these questions and more, the Greek focal point, in close collaboration with the Enterprise Europe Network is organising a webinar on 29 October. The webinar assesses the crucial OSH issues emerging this year as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and examines the requirements for a safe return to work. Speakers discuss the main OSH challenges related to the future of work and consider how impending risks, such as climate change, will affect the safety and health of workers. Finally, the Enterprise Europe Network OSH Ambassador presents the activities of the EEN and its national branch in Greece in supporting micro and small businesses, and in promoting OSH issues at national level.

The event is of interest to OSH specialists and managers in both the private and public sector, health and safety advisers and occupational doctors. HR managers, members of the national OSH Council (SAYE) and members of the Enterprise Europe Network-Hellas will also find the event relevant and informative.
