Minimising chemical risk to workers' health and safety through substitution  (19/12/2012)

Catalog N. : KE-30-12-758-EN-N

This report presents the results of a study on the practical implementation of substitution of hazardous chemicals, as an occupational health and safety risk management measure, in workplaces across the EU. Funded by DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, the publication examines if there is a need for an EU-wide common guidance on substitution, with results indicating that such a document would be welcome. It recognises that various approaches to substitution – as well as challenges to these approaches – exist, and there-fore the bulk of the report focuses on developing a common approach to substitution and presenting it as a guidance document. This publication is available in electronic format in English.

Catalog N. : KE-AZ-12-002-EN-N

As the EU continues to try to overcome the current economic crisis, the reduction of unemployment – and in particular long-term unemployment (LTU) – is a priority for citizens and policymakers alike. This report looks at how LTU has changed at national and EU level, and tries to identify groups according to age, gender, educational level, migrant/ethnic minority status, job sector/occupation and region of residence. Structural factors (skills mismatches, insurance contribution policies etc) on the demand and supply side seeking to explain these trends are examined, before the report starts analyzing different policy options that could be used to overcome this problem. This publication is available in electronic format in English, French and German.
