European Week Seeks to Cut Workplace Accidents, Diseases

Reducing the number of work-related accidents and illnesses is the target for the European Week for Safety and Health at Work, Oct. 20-24.

Organized by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA), the week's campaign activities will highlight the importance of assessing health and safety risks. EU-OSHA also has produced a new report on "Risk Assessment" to showcase practical ways in which workplace risks can be managed and reduced.

The European Week is part of the Healthy Workplaces campaign on risk assessment. During this week hundreds of campaign events and activities will take place all over Europe. These include conferences and exhibitions, training sessions and activities where both large and small companies work together. The common theme linking all these events is promoting the importance of carrying out risk assessment in every workplace.
