Greece - Boost awareness of dangerous substances at work
The aim of the event is to boost awareness of the Healthy Workplaces Manage Dangerous Substances campaign among local audiences, and to share information about safety and health at work.
Speakers explain the aim and objectives of the campaign to establish a culture of risk prevention in all workplaces. They present the existing occupational safety and health (OSH) legislation and discuss how its proper implementation can help minimise accidents caused by hazardous chemicals in the workplace.
in an effort to build safer and healthier working environments and reduce harmful exposures, speakers introduce safe ways to handle dangerous substances such as clinical waste, asbestos and wood dust.
