"Working together for risk prevention"
ESIG joins the two-year EU-OSHA (European Agency for Safety and Health at Work) Healthy Workplaces Campaign. The theme for 2012-2013 “Working together for risk prevention” is part of the overall “Health at Workplaces” campaign initiated by OSHA. It is supported by a wide range of 57 organisations representing social partners, multinational companies and non-profit pan-European organisations such as ESIG. ESIG is looking forward to supporting the campaign and its targets. In addition this is also an opportunity for ESIG to further promote its mission and its product stewardship activities and materials among stakeholders at EU level.
The 2012–13 Healthy Workplaces Campaign ‘Working together for risk prevention’ is designed to help national authorities, companies, organisations, managers, workers and other stakeholders to work together to enhance health and safety in the workplace. It will contribute to lay the foundations for a more sustainable risk prevention culture in Europe. The campaign supports a wide range of activities at national and European level, including national partnership meetings and seminars.
Addressing safety and health also creates significant opportunities both for the employers and the workers: fewer accidents, healthier, happier and better motivated employees, increased productivity as a result and also a better reputation for corporate social responsibility among investors, customers and communities.
