CESI honoured for longstanding commitment in EU-OSHA Healthy Workplaces Campaigns

At this year’s Good Practice Exchange Event and Award Ceremony of the 2018-2019 Healthy Workplaces Campaign of the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA), CESI was honoured for continued commitment as an official campaign partner over the last years. CESI has been a long-standing partner of the EU-OSHA healthy workplaces campaigns since 2009, biennial initiatives that focus on specific topics related to health-conscious working environments, providing information and clarification.

CESI Secretary General Klaus Heeger said: “As a trade union confederation, it is self-evident for CESI to keep engaging in the most important regular awareness-raising campaign on healthy workplaces in Europe, and we are glad to continue contributing to healthy and safe working conditions for workers and employees in Europe.”

He added: “The current Healthy Workplaces Campaign 2018-19 on ‘Healthy Workplaces Manage Dangerous Substances’ addresses once again one of CESI’s core priorities. CESI has for long worked to promote adequate health and safety measures for all workers.

This concerns not only psychosocial risks but also the management of dangerous substances. At CESI, we believe that this Healthy Workplaces Campaign edition comes at a timely moment to complement the EU’s current legislative agenda on caps for carcinogens and mutagens at work: Legal restrictions on the exposure of workers to hazardous substances and accompanying awareness-raising projects and information-dissemination must go hand in hand.”

As a European trade union umbrella organisation and social partner, CESI contributes to the success of the healthy workplaces campaigns by reaching out to -and working with- its extensive trade union network across Europe: For a proper and responsible management of dangerous substances which puts the health and safety of workers first.
