Celebrating Occupational Health and Safety Day in Estonia

‘Occupational Health and Safety Day’ takes place in Estonia on 8 November. Its aim is to highlight and discuss important topics in occupational health, and this year the focus will be on musculoskeletal issues, in line with the Healthy Workplaces 'Lighten the Load' campaign.

Expert speakers will address how employers can support workers with chronic musculoskeletal illnesses or pain. Employers are invited to share their experiences and motivate others to implement supportive measures.  

In addition, the Labour Inspectorate will award two companies (one small, one large) with the accolade "Good Working Environment 2022".
