Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > Focus on the EU strategic framework 2021-2027 on occupational health and safety

On 28 June 2021, the European Commission adopted a new strategic framework for the EU on health and safety at work for the period 2021-2027.

This text aims to mobilise the EU institutions, Member States, social partners and other stakeholders on the challenges and key actions to be implemented around three cross-cutting objectives:

  • anticipating and managing change in the new world of work
  • improving the prevention of accidents at work and occupational diseases
  • strengthening preparedness for possible future health crises.

The FOCUS published today by EUROGIP takes stock of this new strategic framework and in particular of the actions that the European Commission has planned to carry out and those in which it is inviting the Member States and the social partners to become involved. It should be noted that the Commission has sometimes set deadlines.
