Dr. Christa Sedlatschek

New EU-OSHA Director Candidate Chosen

Christa Sedlatschek of the German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health is the choice.

Dr. Christa Sedlatschek of the German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health is the choice by the Governing Board of the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work -- called EU-OSHA -- as its candidate to be the agency's next director.

The announcement followed an open competition. The board, meeting in Brussels on June 29, chose Sedlatschek from a short list of candidates drawn up by the European Commission. She will now be invited to the European Parliament to meet with members of the Employment and Social Affairs Committee on July 13.

Sedlatschek is currently the head of Initiatives, Programmes, Transfer and Network Management and the director of the Initiative for a New Quality of Work (www.inqa.de) at the German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA). She has previously worked at EU-OSHA as Head of the Working Environment Unit.
