World Day for Safety and Health at Work

This Friday (28 April) is World Day for Safety and Health at Work. This year's campaign focuses on the need for countries to improve their capacity to collect and utilise reliable occupational safety and health data.

Eurofound has compiled information on a broad range of issues, including exposure to physical and phychosocial risks, as part of a data visualisation tool for our sixth European Working Conditions survey; which involved interviews with nearly 44,000 workers in 35 countries.

As part of the run-up to the day, our colleagues at the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-Osha) are holding the Healthy Workplaces Good Practice Awards ceremony in Valetta, Malta. The competition, which is a key element of the 2016-17 ‘Healthy Workplaces for All Ages’ Campaign, aims to highlight innovative examples of organisations taking action to promote sustainable working lives.
