EUROGIP Discussions “Preventing occupational risks in the healthcare sector for the elderly”

The health crisis having prevented us from holding our Discussions on this theme in March 2020, we have rescheduled them for 9 March 2021. In view of the situation, the conference will only be broadcast live on the internet.

Unfortunately, we regret that we are unable to provide simultaneous translation into English for this digital event, but we will publish proceedings in English just after the conference which will include most of the contributions.

Why this subject?

Whether they are self-employed, employees of a home care provider or of an institution, staff working with elderly people are faced with multiple occupational risks: physical, chemical, biological, psychosocial, etc.

The shortage of staff observed for several years has only served to increase exposure to these risks and the sector in France has a much higher occupational accident rate than the national average. Better prevention of these risks is a major challenge, not only in terms of health and safety at work, but also in terms of promoting the long-term employability of staff in this sector faced with the challenges of old age.

How to participate in the conference online

Your participation is free but your prior registration to participate online in the EUROGIP Discussions 2021 is necessary. The day before the event, you will receive an e-mail with the information to connect. You will have the possibility to ask a question before the conference or on the day itself via a live chat that will be set up on the website.

We look forward to seeing you there!
