Healthy Workplaces. Good for you. Good for business

by admin on October 27, 2011

Each year EU-wide, 167000 deaths are attributable to work-related accidents/illnesses, and the number of occupational accidents is estimated at 7 million. Apart from tragic individual consequences, the loss of earnings is around a billion euros a year. Improving workers’ health and safety is therefore key for the EU. The European Commissions 5-year strategy is aiming for a 25% reduction in occupational accidents by 2012. This is what the campaign by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) is about. For more information: EU health & safety strategy: OSHA campaign website: Download:

    Well, well, well. Why am I not surprised to learn that the Politbu…I mean the European Commission addresses their issues by creating centralized plans stretching over several years? Planning like this belong in a Communist or Socialist nation, and was common in the Soviet Union…oh wait. Noooow I understand the meaning of EUSSR!

    People are not commenting because there is no European Identify. The only thing Russians and Portuguese have in common, are the treaties by the EU. People who claim to feel European, have been successfully influenced by the EU’s campaigns.

    The topics of eutube’s videos do raise interest of Europe’s inhabitants, because they are more concerned about the (designed) undemocratic nature of the EU. Check the videos of youtube-user ‘europarl’.
