Investment in occupational health and safety improves people’s lives by preventing accidents and work-related illness. Building on past efforts, the Commission’s new initiative aims to better protect workers against work-related cancer; to help businesses, in particular SME’s and micro-enterprises, in their efforts to comply with the existing legislative framework; to put a bigger focus on results and less on paperwork.
