Occupational Safety and Health and Employability: Programmes, Practices and Experiences
Office for Official Publications of the European Communities, 2001 - Business & Economics - 214 pages
Improving the employability of workers is seen as one of the four key initiatives that a government could take to improve employment within national economies. Interventions that maintain or improve the health of workers can clearly have an effect in contributing to the employability of the workforce and this link was formally established in the European Union's Employment Guidelines 2000, in which health and safety at work is included for the first time. This report gives an overview of initiatives taken in Member States in this area and includes 26 case studies, which cover topics such as prevention programmes, the rehabilitation of ill workers, and workplace health promotion.
