The European Campaign for Safety and Health at Work for 2008-09 will focus on risk assessment.
This two-year campaign is aimed at a wide range of stakeholders, including employers, workers and safety representatives, and is intended to promote the benefits of completing and implementing a risk assessment. The campaign seeks to demystify the risk assessment process to show that risk assessment is not necessarily complicated, bureaucratic or a task only for experts.
The campaign also aims to raise awareness on this issue, provide information and practical advice, encourage activities that have a positive impact in the workplace, and identify and recognise good practice.
For European Week itself, on October 20-24, there are a number of activities planned based on the campaign theme, more details of which will be announced shortly.
