Healthy Workplaces Summit 2019
The event brought together leading European experts and decision makers that discussed the results of the two-year campaign, shared knowledge and explored future strategies for effective prevention, and sustainable management of dangerous substances at workplaces.
Parallel workshops looked at the prevention activities regarding carcinogens at work, good practices in the service sector and substitution of dangerous substances in production processes. The most effective OSH-measures as regards to future developments of chemicals was also discussed.
A special highlight of the Summit was the Healthy Workplaces Good Practice Awards ceremony that celebrated the ten organisations that had been awarded and commended by an independent international jury for taking a proactive and participative approach to managing dangerous substances.
Finally, the Agency presented the forthcoming Healthy Workplaces Campaign 2020-22, which will start running in October 2020 and will be raising awareness of the importance of preventing risks of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).
