Research places older workers at the forefront of OSH policies…

A pilot project hosted by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) has presented some key findings as a result of a series of reports conducted on occupational safety and health (OSH) in the context of an ageing EU workforce.

One report ‘The ageing workforce: implications for occupational safety and health’ demonstrates the physical and psychological implications of work and age-related challenges; pinpointing the need for OSH policies to pay particular attention to chemical and physical hazards…

Furthermore, although it’s commonly thought that older employees can struggle to keep up with the demands that shift work can bring, the report explains they often exhibit ‘better judgement’ and ‘enhanced knowledge’ compared to their younger counterparts.

An additional report, Analysis report on EU and Member States policies, strategies and programmesdelves further into the major influences on policy development and clarifies some of the key differences between OSH systems in EU countries.
