Report of the EPSU/ETUI workshop on "Working conditions and Health and Safety issues for firefighters"

10-12 June 2010, Vienna (15 June 2010) The EPSU/ETUI workshop brought together 28 participants from the EPSU firefighters network in 18 countries. The workshop discussion will feed into a European-wide health and safety brochure to provide members with a practical tool to support trade union strategies to tackle health problems and improve the quality of work in the fire service. One key problem in the fire service is long working hours and the network also discussed the developments regarding the EU working time Directive. Participants stressed the need to have rules on working time that protect workers. {{{Brief report of the EPSU/ETUI workshop on “Working conditions and Health and Safety issues for firefighters” 10-12 June 2010, Vienna}}}
