New ESENER-2 analysis highlights disparity in the management of safety and health risks in the workplace15 février, par EU-OSHA15/02/2018
A new report analysing findings of the second European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER-2) takes a broad view of European occupational safety and health (OSH) practice. The report highlights that, although traditional occupational safety risks are largely well addressed across Europe, health and psychosocial risks are not as well managed. There is a need to expand current trends to more comprehensively address health and psychosocial risks as part of good OSH practice.
