EU-OSHA Seeks Better Management of Dangerous Substances

The 2018-2019 Healthy Workplaces Campaign by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, or EU-OSHA, and its partners is focused on managing dangerous substances in the workplace. EU-OSHA and numerous companies marked this year's European Week for Safety and Health at Work (Oct. 22-26) with events to raise awareness of the topic and to encourage businesses to embrace active safety management of dangerous substances.

According to the agency, dangerous substances are present in nearly all EU workplaces, with 38 percent of EU companies reporting that chemical or biological substances in the form of liquids, fumes, or dust are present in their workplaces, according to EU-OSHA's second European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (known as the ESENER-2 survey).
