Design and Commissioning of Counterfactual Impact Evaluations - A Practical Guidance for ESF Managing Authorities  (30/08/2013)

Catalog N. : KE-30-13-216-EN-N

Evaluations of programmes and interventions financed through the European Social Fund (ESF) have proven challenging and have in many cases not allowed policy-makers to draw evidence-based conclusions regarding their effectiveness and efficiency. In order to strengthen future evaluations, the European Commission is encouraging Member States to increase efforts to develop credible evidence of ESF effects beyond what would have been achieved in the absence of ESF support. Such evidence requires counterfactual impact evaluations (CIEs) – i.e. comparison of results to estimates of what would have occurred otherwise. This guidance provides practical advice on some of the key questions that need to be considered when designing, commissioning and conducting CIEs. It is intended for ESF Managing Authorities (MA) and other bodies responsible for the implementation of ESF-funded programmes and interventions. The focus is on practicalities, though through necessity some technical issues are discussed. This publication is available in electronic format in English. French and German versions will be available in October 2013.

Catalog N. : KE-30-13-227-EN-C

Over the next few years, the EU chemical Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (CLP) is changing how chemical products are classified to identify hazards. This will result in changes to the information which is communicated to users of chemicals on labels and in safety data sheets (SDSs). People working with chemicals must adapt to these changes, and this document will act as practical guidance. Specifically, it will explain how these changes will affect your responsibilities under various EU worker protection directives (chemical agents directive, carcinogens and mutagens directive, safety signs directive, pregnant workers directive and young people at work directive).

Chemicals at work – a new labelling system - Guidance to help employers and workers to manage the transition to the new classification, labelling and packaging system.  (09/08/2013)

Catalog N. : KE-30-13-226-EN-C

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.
