CEOC International - EU-OSHA new campaign partner

CEOC International has become an official partner of the latest  Europe-wide campaign, 'Healthy Workplaces for all ages', launched by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) on 14 April 2016. The campaign focuses on Europe’s enterprises (both private and public) and the need to promote sustainable work and healthy ageing from the beginning of working life. By doing so, they will be protecting their workers’ health up to and beyond retirement age and their organisations’ productivity.

Commissioner Marianne Thyssen responsible from Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility said: “At a time when there are important discussions going on about the future landscape of occupational safety and health in the EU, this campaign is extremely relevant. We need to start now to cater for the needs of Europe’s future workplaces and workers. Workplaces that address the health challenges of an ageing workforce gain in productivity. This is good for workers and good for business.

 Key objectives of the 2016–17 Campaign, 'Healthy Workplaces for All Ages':

  • Promote sustainable work and healthy ageing from the beginning of working life;
  • Highlight the importance of prevention throughout working life;
  • Assist employers and workers (including in SMEs) by providing information and tools for managing OSH in the context of an ageing workforce;
  • Facilitate information exchange and good practice.

Key dates:

  • European Weeks for Safety and Health at Work:  24-28 October 2016 and 2017
  • Good Practice Exchange event with official campaign partners: March 2017
  • Healthy Workplaces Good Practice Awards Ceremony:  April 2017
