Its research aims to provide a database of convincing information for policy makers and to facilitate the sharing of good practices on risk prevention and readaptation. EU-OSHA’s recent research has focused on alert and sentinel systems regarding OSH, on work-related diseases caused by biological agents and on workers’ readaptation and return to the workplace after cancer treatment.
