Workplace accidents in the EU claim more than 3 million victims per year and over 4,000 workers die due to serious accidents, according to a report issued by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (OSHA). The human suffering, as well as the economic burden of poor occupational safety and health is unacceptably high. Positive workplaces not only increase workers’ health, safety and wellbeing, but also companies' productivity and competitiveness. Studies have shown that for each Euro invested in prevention the return ranges between 1.29 and 2.89 Euros.

In April 2014, EU-OSHA launched the “Healthy Workplaces Manage Stress" campaign to raise awareness and provide practical advice and support for employers’ and workers’ representatives, managers and workers.

Also this year, building on previous strategies and consultations, the European Commission adopted the next Strategic Framework on Health and Safety at Work 2014-2020 so as to better protect European workers from accidents and diseases. The Framework aims to better implement current health and safety rules, as well to strengthen the prevention of work-related diseases.

This international symposium will provide an invaluable opportunity to discuss how the number of occupational accidents can be reduced especially in high risk industrial work environments, and consider an effective cross-border strategy to prevent psychosocial risks and other work-related diseases. The symposium will allow delegates to examine and assess projects, tools and best practices tackling occupational safety and health issues in Europe so as to create healthy workplaces and foster growth.

Public Policy Exchange welcomes the participation of all key partners, responsible authorities and stakeholders to exchange ideas and engage in thought-provoking topical debate.
