Summit of the Healthy Workplaces Campaign

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 12 novembre 2009

Bilbao, Spain, on 17 November 2009. The importance of risk assessment in the workplace, especially in small and medium-sized enterprises, will be the focus of a high-profile event organised by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) and the Swedish EU Presidency, the summit marks the close of the Healthy Workplaces Campaign on risk assessment, which for the last two years has been promoting practical ways in which workplace risks can be managed and reduced. The event will also include the award ceremony of a pan-European photo competition and presentations of some of our 43 EU campaign partners, giving insight to our first campaign partnership experience, and of the winners of the Good Practice Awards. This scheme recognises organisations that have found innovative ways of keeping European workers safe. Preliminary results will also be made available of the European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER), a €2.6 million study which provides a unique insight into European organisations, the action they are taking to anticipate and manage the new risks brought about by changing workplaces, and the support they might need in doing so. The Agency has also made a wide range of material freely available, to help organisations (and especially SMEs) carry out risk assessments in a systematic and thorough manner, and so identify the steps that they need to take to keep their employees safe. At the summit, EU-OSHA director, Dr Takala, presents a new Online Risk Assessment Tool with checklists and plans that help to demystify the risk assessment process. This free tool is being developed as a joint project with EU social partners.
