The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work is running the European Week for Safety and Health at Work from 21-25 October 2019.
The theme of this years’ campaign is ‘Healthy Workplaces Manage Dangerous Substances’ and it’s all about encouraging business all over Europe to raise their awareness of the dangerous substances they work with and how they manage their risks.
Now, while our future relationship to the EU is still yet to be determined, this week of awareness is the perfect chance to take a look at what dangerous substances your business might work with, how you can assess and then reduce or remove those risks.
Luckily, our Health & Safety experts have produced some great content designed to help business owners just like you get to grips with the safest ways to manage dangerous substances in your workplace.
