New Challenges in Promoting Health and Safety at Work

In its 2015 education and training year, the European Centre for Workers’ Questions (EZA) conducted a series of seminars with the aim of developing strategies of action for workers’ organisations in the face of the new challenges in health and safety at work. The seminars focused on the following aspects: preventing psychosocial risks, especially work-related stress; applying legislative provisions, particularly in small firms; introducing a gender perspective in the strategies for health and safety at work; promoting job satisfaction. Big differences between the various regions of Europe became apparent in the course of the project series’ five seminars.

EZA member centres that have been addressing the issues for some years in their projects were involved in the series of seminars. Experts from the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) presented its activities at three seminars, providing key input for the entire project series.

Not least because of its contributions to the seminars, EZA had applied to become a partner of the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work in the 2016/2017 campaign on “Healthy Workplaces For All Ages”. Since November 2017, EZA has been an official campaign partner.
