EUROGIP wishes you a very happy new year 2022! We are happy to accompany you and to enlighten you on the themes of prevention and insurance of work-related risks at international level for 30 years.

Let’s go back in time… In 1991, just before the opening of the European Single Market, numerous European directives and standards were adopted to allow products, people and services to be able to circulate freely. In this rapidly changing context, French Social Security has set itself several objectives:

  • Understanding the issues at stake
  • Participating in the process that is being set up
  • Knowing the practices in other countries in the field of prevention of occupational accidents and diseases
  • Putting forward its point of view at European level.

It has therefore entrusted these tasks to the public interest grouping that it has created, EUROGIP. It is now an observatory and resource centre on the prevention and insurance of work-related risks in Europe and internationally, which carries out various activities.

The whole team wishes you a very happy new year 2022, always happy to accompany and enlighten you on these issues!
