In this new Focus, EUROGIP – which is also associated with the corresponding Task Force – reports on the new European Occupational Diseases Statistics (EODS) pilot project.
The aim is to collect national data in a single database and to provide trends on the most recognised occupational diseases (ODs) at European level.
In the 2000s, such an experiment had already been attempted. However, Eurostat was forced to discontinue its publications due to the non-comparability of the countries between them. Today, it proposes to experiment with a new, simpler and more reliable data collection.
