Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > Evaluation of OSH directives: the Commission publishes the national reports

The European Commission’s Directorate General of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion has published the national reports on evaluation of the directives relating to occupational safety and health (OSH) in EU Member States.

The national reports, often several hundred pages long, are in English, and follow the same presentation plan: OSH components, differences in terms of content and time, level of conformity of the various stakeholders, support measures for implementation of the rules, implementation, specific worker groups, SMEs and micro-enterprises, bibliography and interviews.

The database also contains documents and reports on EU policies, and studies, statements and descriptions of EU-funded projects.
