The European Week for Safety and Health at Work
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 an 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 the 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 for All Ages campaign, then the European Week could be the perfect time to make sure your event gets the attention it deserves.
Organised by EU-OSHA and its partners, the European Weeks 2016 and 2017 have the campaign theme at their heart, and the activities will focus on raising awareness of the importance of a sustainable working life.
You can find out more about what is happening near you during the European Week from your national focal point — and your focal point may also be able to help you organise an event.
