EUROGIP has published its annual activity report for 2020. After a reminder of what EUROGIP is, the document presents the highlights according to its activities, which have as a common denominator the prevention or insurance of occupational risks in Europe:
- External relations & communication
- Information & monitoring
- Studies & surveys
- Projects of Community interest
- Work on standardisation of the SST of the Assurance maladie – risques professionnels
- Coordination of notified bodies for the regulatory certification of machinery and personal protective equipment.
In 2020, the health crisis had a clear impact on the achievement of the objectives initially set. In addition, EUROGIP has been very active in playing its role as a resource centre. It has collected and disseminated information on measures implemented outside our borders to prevent the risks of contamination at work, on the mechanisms for recognising Covid-19 as an occupational injury or on the regulations applicable to protective masks.
“More than ever, it seemed essential to have extra-national knowledge, while each country had to manage the crisis and, for the most part, innovate in their insurance and prevention practices”, says Raphaël Haeflinger, Director of EUROGIP.
