THE EUROGIP discussions: a European conference
The conference is addressed to anyone particularly interested in hearing the testimonies of representatives of organisations from other countries or European institutions on an issue related to prevention of occupational risks or insurance against accidents at work and occupational diseases.
The EUROGIP Disssusions on 19 March 2015 held on the theme ““Europe and occupational safety and health: What achievements? What outlook?” (in Paris).
Risks improperly identified, delayed effect of exposure up to several decades, difficulty to prove the relationship between exposure and disease, etc. Occupational diseases (ODs) represent an issue which is more complex to deal with than accidents at work.
To explore further the issue, the EUROGIP Discussions on 15 March 2012 gave the opportunity to express their views to representatives of the European Commission, of EU-OSHA, to European social partners and to insurance organisations against occupational diseases in Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden.
