8/07/2021

  • This online symposium, organized by EU-OSHA, took place last July 5th.

On July 5, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) held an on-line symposium that marked the launch the European Commission’s new Strategic Framework.

This new Strategic Framework is aimed at improving worker protection and ensuring that OSH keeps pace with the rapidly evolving challenges facing Europe’s workplaces.

Several professionals related to this strategic framework participated in this symposium, such as Mr. Nicolas Schmit, European Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights.

In his own words: “as we build back better from the crisis, ensuring workers have a high level of protection of their health and safety at work has to be a priority. We must commit to a ‘vision zero’ approach when it comes to work-related deaths in the EU. Of course being healthy at work is not only about our physical state, it is also about our mental health and well-being. I count on the continued invaluable support of our agency EU-OSHA to promote the new strategic OSH framework and help Member States implement their national plans”.

EWJI is an official partner of the EU-OSHA’s “Healthy workplaces manage dangerous substances” campaign.
