This guide gives an overview of the background to, principle actors in, and essential tools of, EU occupational health and safety policy with the aim of contributing to a better understanding of this policy and of facilitating effective intervention at European level.
It is aimed primarily at worker representatives responsible for health and safety at work and union officials involved in this area. It will also be useful to anyone with an interest in EU policy developments or involved in preventing occupational risks.
The information is up-to-date as of the end of March 2015. Our Institute’s information tools, such as HesaMag magazine, the Hesamail e-newsletter and our website, will provide regular updates of any changes.
