EUROGIP has collected examples of guidelines and good practices in occupational safety and health (OSH) at European and national level to be implemented in the context of business continuity or business resumption related to Covid-19.

The examples concern the EU and ten countries: Germany, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Spain, the United States, France, Ireland, Portugal and Switzerland.

They are mostly from authorities and social partners. The EUROGIP note is the result of the exploitation of the public data they have made available online to date.
