Catalog N. : KE-AF-09-022-EN-C
This issue of DG Employment's flagship magazine, Social Agenda, focuses on the EU's health and safety standards in the workplace. The magazine looks at the wide range of measures the EU has put into place to ensure workers' safety, including the Community strategy 2007-2012 on health and safety, the sharing of best practices across the EU and efforts to reduce injuries in the healthcare sector. This issue also investigates how public perceptions about employment have changed since the onset of the economic crisis and looks at Commission initiatives to combat its effects, such as micro-financing for small businesses. It is available in English, French and German.
