Emergency services: occupational safety and health risks

Keywords:Förebyggande av olyckor, Emerging risks, Belastningsbesvär, Stress och psykosociala risker

The report shows that emergency workers have a high risk of suffering fatal accidents, injuries and other occupational diseases. Past disasters demonstrate that both communities and companies are often not fully prepared for major accidents and catastrophes. Better protection for emergency workers against occupational hazards should be given high priority, as current environmental, economic, and political developments suggest an increase in the severity and frequency of future disasters.
