Spain - Annual Network Meeting: national partners discuss the management of dangerous substances
This network meeting brings together national partners in Spain to discuss the Healthy Workplaces Manage Dangerous Substances campaign and the activities planned for 2019. The meeting offers them the opportunity to exchange good practices on the effective management of work-related exposure to dangerous substances, and the establishment of a risk prevention culture.
Speakers share updates on occupational safety and health (OSH) legislation in Europe. Participants work together in groups to familiarise themselves with the different aspects of the campaign. They discuss the impact of technological advances in OSH, the integration of prevention measures in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and studies on costs and benefits of prevention for companies. They also share ideas on how to integrate the topic of prevention in education.
Network members then present initiatives taken to reduce the risks related to dangerous substances, including prevention tools designed for SMEs. Finally, they discuss the occupational risk management cycle and developments in the equality of women and men in OSH.
