What is it?
Held each year in October (calendar week 43), the European Week for Safety and Health at Work is a highlight of every Healthy Workplaces Campaign. With hundreds of awareness-raising events taking place across the EU and beyond — and extra impetus given to media coverage — it is the ideal opportunity to get involved in the campaign.
Special film screenings, social media events, conferences, exhibitions, competitions and training sessions are just some of the activities organised to celebrate European Week. If you have an idea for an awareness-raising activity or want to launch a longer term safety and health project to tie in with the Healthy Workplaces Campaign, then European Week is the perfect opportunity to make sure your event gets the attention it deserves.
Organised by EU-OSHA and its partners, each European Week has the campaign theme at its heart and aims to raise awareness of the importance of active, participative workplace safety and health management.
You can find out more about what is happening near you during the next European Week from your national focal point — and your focal point may also be able to help you organise an event.
