A focal point for EU health and safety players

The ‘focal points’ of the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work have a new Web section giving an overview of national occupational safety and health systems in the Member States, EFTA States, and candidate and pre-candidate countries.

The Agency is a network organisation, with a ‘focal point’ in all of these countries. Nominated by each government as EU-OSHA’s official representative in that country, the focal points are typically the competent national authority for safety and health at work and are primary contributors to the implementation of the EU-OSHA’s work programmes.

Each focal point manages its own tripartite network, comprising government bodies and representatives from worker and employer organisations. This network provides input to the EU-OSHA’s work and the mechanism to disseminate products and information to national stakeholders.

Visitors to the new site  can browse by State, main actors and strategies, and link through to national authorities, social partners, and institutes, as well as finding out about local events and news. It can be found at
