Joint HOSPEEM-EPSU Statement on the new EU occupational safety and health policy framework

Brussels, 11 December 2013/12 February 2014

EPSU and HOSPEEM agreed on a joint statement on the future EU Policy framework/strategy on occupational safety and health for the years 2014-2020. The document was elaborated in summer/automn 2013 and should add to the contributions EPSU and HOSPEEM had sent in August 2013 in the context of the EC consultation. With this joint statement the EU sectoral social partners for the hospital/health care sector wish to send a clear political signal to the European Commission and other stakeholders underlining the need and usefulness of having such a EU-level policy framework/strategy and highlighting some of the key topics and procedural requirements HOSPEEM and EPSU would see to be reflected.

Please read below the joint statement and find the link to an article dealing with the major issues the EPSU reply to the consultation is focusing on. The document is also accessible on this page below as the replies by several EPSU affiliates, by the European Federation of Nurses Associations (EFN) and by the Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee for Local and Regional Government (SSDC LRG).
