The European Agency for safety and health at work (EU-OSHA) invites nominations for the European good practice in the field of occupational safety and health. Within the framework of the healthy workplaces campaign sure 2014-2015, the prizes will be awarded to companies or organizations that have made outstanding and innovative contributions to the safety and health at work.
The European Good Practice Awards is an important element of the Healthy Workplaces Campaign, and is intended to demonstrate the benefits of applying good safety and health practices in the workplace. The scheme is organised by EU-OSHA in cooperation with Member States and the Presidency of the European Union.
The Good Practice Awards 2014–15 aim to highlight leading examples of companies or organisations actively managing stress and psychosocial risks at work. Winners must display strong commitment and a participative approach when dealing with psychosocial risks. Judges will be looking for the best examples of enterprises or organisations successfully assessing, eliminating or reducing psychosocial risks and stress at work.
Entries are welcome from all European employers and workers, and intermediaries such as social partners, safety and health professionals and practitioners, and those providing assistance and information at the workplace level.
Winners will receive their awards at a ceremony in spring 2015, at which the achievements of all those who took part will be celebrated. It is expected that a manager and a workers’ representative will each be presented with an award. Details of their outstanding joint contribution will be marked with a special publication that will be widely distributed across Europe and promoted through the EU-OSHA website.
