Over the next few years, new legislation known as the CLP regulation is changing how chemical products are classified to identify hazards, and how this information is communicated on labels and safety data sheets (SDSs).
This document is intended to provide practical guidance to employers and workers on how the directly acting CLP regulation (Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on the Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures) will affect the following worker protection directives:
chemical agents directive (98/24/EC);
carcinogens and mutagens directive (2004/37/EC);
safety signs directive (92/58/EEC);
pregnant workers directive (92/85/EEC);
young people at work directive (94/33/EC).
These directives have been implemented in the national legislation of each Member State. Information on this legislation and general guidance on how to comply will normally be available from the authorities responsible for occupational health and safety in each Member State.
This publication is available in printed format in English, French and German.
This booklet is designed for anyone who is thinking of moving to live and work abroad – or else commuting daily to work in a neighbouring country, as a cross-border worker.

All these countries have an agreement to allow each other's citizens to travel and work in any of the other countries. This publication will be available in printed format and as eBook in all EU official languages as well as in Icelandic and Norwegian.

The report on the performance of the EU Progress programme in 2012 provides a key insight into how the programme has fared in meeting EU goals in the fields of employment, social inclusion and social protection, working conditions, equality between women and men and fight against discriminations. It analyses the significant contribution of the activities funded through Progress to the implementation of the Europe 2020 strategy, in terms of policy coordination, implementation of EU laws and support to the main stakeholders. The report supports concrete outcomes by providing them with visibility, focusing on the evolving policy priorities in the relevant policy areas, and the main challenges still facing the EU.

According this edition of the EU Employment and Social Situation Quarterly Review, labour market and social challenges have been growing over recent months, as the EU is still faced with ever higher unemployment and the lowest employment figures since the onset of the crisis.
The employment and social situation in the EU remained critical in the first quarter of 2013 with employment receding overall and unemployment rising further, trends which concentrate in the southern members of the euro area. The situation of many households, and of young people in particular, remains serious. Nearly a quarter of economically active young people in the EU are unemployed. The sharp fall in young people's employment in some countries partly reflects differences in labour market structures, and in particular the role of temporary contracts. In the context of divergence across the EU, the number of people wanting to move to another country has substantially increased. The Review also notes the importance of quality childcare in mitigating inequalities at an early stage and explores the results of the first wave of the European Central Bank's Household Finance and Consumption Survey. Recent developments in the financial and insurance activities sector, as well as in Slovenia and Croatia, are also analysed in this edition.

Dette resumé af rapporten kigger på, hvordan arbejdsmarkedsrelationerne har udviklet sig siden vores sidste udgivelse i 2010. Efter at den økonomiske krise har udviklet sig til en suveræn gældskrise har regeringsreformer haft en væsentlig indvirkning på forholdet mellem arbejdsgiver, fagforeninger og offentlige myndigheder. Mens social dialog gav den nødvendige fleksibilitet til at overvinde de første effekter af krisen, har varigheden og omfanget nu resulteret i en ugunstig situation for den sociale dialog. Ikke desto mindre understreges vigtigheden af fortsat velstruktureret dialog i sammenfatningen, og Kommissionens engagement for at støtte og fremme udviklingen af social dialog fremhæves.
Investing in the green economy will be key to overcoming the employment crisis in the EU and driving economic
growth. In order for the Commission’s integrated policy approach to work an environmental focus needs to be
prioritised at Member State level as well. This review looks at whether and to what extent national and regional
governments have refocused their policy efforts towards green sectors, and the nature of the policy efforts pursued.
The European policy context for promoting transition to green growth is examined and the types of national/regional
policies and measures identified, before the findings and lessons are summarised.
