EU-OSHA ENP Project in Armenia
In December 2014, EU-OSHA representatives travelled to Yerevan to meet with our partners in the Republic of Yerevan, as part of EU-OSHA’s European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) project supported by the European Commission.
While in Yerevan, EU-OSHA met with the Ministry of Health, which is the responsible authority for safety and health at work in Armenia. The meeting was also attended by representatives of the Armenian National Institute of Health and social partners as well as the International Labour Organisation and was held in the offices of the National Institute of Health.
The meeting provided EU-OSHA with an opportunity to introduce the work of the agency and discuss the current priorities for occupational safety and health in the EU. In particular we introduced the Agency’s current work programme and the EU Strategic Framework. The meeting gave us the opportunity to better understand the system for managing OSH in Armenia and their current challenges and priorities.
Following the meeting in the National Institute of Health we met with our colleagues in the Ministry of Health to outline some possible activities on which to collaborate during the current ENP Project.
EU-OSHA would like to thank our colleagues in the Ministry of Health in Armenia and all those who participated in our meeting for welcoming us to Yerevan. We are looking forward to continuing our collaboration in the coming months to help make the EU and Armenia safer, healthier and more productive places to work.
