European agreement on the reduction of workers' exposure to the risk of work-related musculo-skeletal disorders in agriculture

In 2005, the social partners in agriculture, the Employers' Group of Agricultural Organisations in the EC (GEOPA-COPA) and the European Federation of Food, Agriculture and Tourism Trade Unions (EFFAT) signed the agreement on the reduction of workers' exposure to the risk of work-related musculo-skeletal disorders in agriculture.

They intend to propose certain initiatives as well as setting up prevention policies with regard to work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) in the professional agricultural sector (European observatory of agricultural workers’ health and safety, centralisation of national statistical data, coordination of policies for the prevention of MSD, organisation of national information and training programmes / information campaigns, implementation of best practices).
