The HEALTHatWORK project reviewed the current state of knowledge and issues related to the economic impact of health and safety at work. The project synthesised and analysed data from national projects and surveys in the participant countries, and recommended future actions for research and policy development aimed at improving health and safety at work in a changing labour market environment in the European Union.

This was achieved through co-ordinated reviews and the development of common datasets of indicators of health and safety at work. The use of geographical information systems (GIS) and statistical analysis facilitated the identification of patterns of the above indicators across countries and time. A pilot study was also designed to evaluate the cost and benefit of investing in health and safety at work.
