During 2016/17 IOSH supported the European Union Occupational Safety and Health Agency’s (EU-OSHA) Europe-wide campaign to highlight the importance of good occupational safety and health management throughout people’s working lives.

The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work’s (EU-OSHA) campaign, ‘Healthy workplaces for all ages’, aims to:

  • promote sustainable work and healthy ageing throughout people’s working lives
  • provide employers and employees with information and tools to help manage the occupational safety and health of an ageing workforce
  • facilitate the exchange of information and good practice in this area.

We’d like to hear about the activities you organise, so please keep us posted

"Working lives are getting longer – older workers are a valuable resource, making positive contributions to organisations and good occupational safety and health management helps ensure that all workers can fulfil their potential at work."
