Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > Agriculture and fisheries: two new guides to good safety practices now available

Two complete sector guides to good occupational safety and health practices can now be downloaded in more than 20 languages. The guides are published by the European Commission.

One covers agriculture, stock raising, horticulture and forestry, while the other covers small fishing vessels (which represent up to 80% of the EU fishing fleet).

These are reference books – user-friendly thanks to their glossaries, illustrations and charts – full of examples of good practices regarding risk prevention, actual case studies and practical resources.
