Beskrivning

For the European Week for Safety and Health 2003, the Agency has collected good practice examples describing how to transfer information effectively to different target groups and how to assess the relevance of the information for these groups. The aim is to provide policy makers, chemical suppliers, researchers, safety professionals, employers and intermediary parties (such as the social partners) with practical information to support, adapt and assess their approach. The factsheet gives overview about nineteen good practice examples from across Europe which were chosen and grouped relating to the level on which the information was dealt with.
