OSHwiki: A collaborative encyclopaedia of occupational safety and health

Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > OSHwiki: A collaborative encyclopaedia of occupational safety and health

In August 2014, EU-OSHA launched OSHwiki, a platform based on the Wikipedia principle dedicated to occupational safety and health (OSH).

In addition to placing online information provided by accredited writers, it hopes to thus encourage “a participative culture by enabling the OSH community to form networks, collaborate and create synergies”.

The articles in OSHwiki will be organized around main chapters such as OSH in general, OSH management and organization, prevention and control strategies, dangerous substances (chemical and biological), ergonomics, work organization, psychosocial issues, etc.

Each month, EU-OSHA highlights one article. In April, the article in question concerns the corporate culture, which plays a crucial role in occupational safety and health.
