The state of occupational safety and health in the European Union: pilot study, Volume 1
Office for Official Publications of the European Communities, 2000 - Health & Fitness - 478 pages
The European Agency information project "The State of Occupational Safety and Health in the European Union - Pilot Study" is a first step to the development of a system for monitoring safety and health in the European Union. It aims at providing decision-makers at Member State and European level with an overview of the current safety and health situation in the European Union to support the identification of common challenges and priority areas for preventive actions. The project report identifies sectors/occupations most identified to be at risk to. The risks are categorised as physical exposures, posture and movement exposures, handling chemicals and psycho-social working conditions. The context of work and the occupational safety and health outcome were also given. Focal Points (Authorities nominated by each Member State) provided information on trends and needs for the development of additional preventive actions related to these risks. Emerging risks were identified as change in work organisation, stress, manual handling, use of new chemicals, violence and repetitive strain. Workers under the age of 18, older workers and workers in health and social work were identified as sensitive work groups. A CD-ROM (contents: Consolidated Report; National Reports and the Manual) is included with this publication.
