2013 European Week for Safety & Health Focuses on Risk Prevention

The ongoing 2013 European Week for Safety and Health at Work, which ends October 25, is focusing on its message of "Working Together for Risk Prevention." Coordinated by European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA), the week is dedicated to promoting the Healthy Workplaces campaign and the benefits of quality leadership with worker participation. In addition, the week focuses on managers and employees working together to reduce risks. "The most effective results in managing and improving the safety and health of an organization are found when workers and their representatives are actively engaged with management—leadership is not enough," says EU-OSHA's Director Christa Sedlatschek.
