Description

EU-OSHA launches its 2018-19 Healthy Workplaces Campaign ‘Manage Dangerous Substances’ jointly with the European Commission and the Bulgarian EU Council Presidency.

The press conference includes the presentation of the campaign, a Q&A session with journalists, photo opportunity and a visit of the exhibition.

Dangerous substances continue to be a major safety and health issue, affecting millions of workers across Europe. But the extent of this exposure and the associated risks are often underestimated or ignored. The campaign challenges common misconceptions, raises awareness of the risks and disseminates good practice and resources for effective management of dangerous substances in the workplace.
