EU-OSHA Announces Safe Maintenance 2010-2011 Campaign

The official launch date of the new campaign is April 28, 2010, this year's World Day for Safety and Health at Work.

The new, 2010-2011 Healthy Workplaces Campaign by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, known as EU-OSHA, will try to raise awareness among EU employers of the importance of maintenance for safe and healthy workplaces and the need to protect workers who perform it.

The agency finished the previous campaign on risk assessment on Nov. 17, 2009, and says that effort produced record levels of involvement across the EU Member States, including hundreds of events; some 2 million information sheets, DVDs, and other pieces of campaign material distributed free; and more than 40 European organizations serving as official partners.

"The high level of participation in the campaign over the past months reflects the importance of risk assessment for healthy workplaces," said EU-OSHA Director Jukka Takala. "With over 450 Europeans dying every day from work-related causes, and with 6 percent of European GDP being lost because of work accidents and ill health, it is vital that we continue to focus on workplace health and safety. I am convinced that the campaign on safe maintenance will build on the success of the risk assessment campaign and continue to reach out to Europe's workers."

The official launch date of the new campaign is April 28, 2010, this year's World Day for Safety and Health at Work. In addition, the agency recently invited nominations for the tenth European Good Practice Awards in occupational health and safety to recognize outstanding companies or organizations; the awards ceremony will take placed in the spring of 2011, with case studies presented in an EU-OSHA booklet distributed across Europe and on the agency's Web site.
