Project description

The proposed project aims to settle the fundamental basis that will enhance research on Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Economics, which will allow for the development of policies regarding this issue. This goal will be achieved through a Support Action which will bring together the leading OHS Economists in Europe.

Their knowledge will be gathered, interpreted and made available to the community through a dynamic on-line repository which will contain OHS Economics issues and will allow for discussion and communication of principles, case studies and management tools. Two specialised Working Group (WinG) meetings focusing on OHS Macroeconomics and OHS Microeconomics, respectively and two conferences on OHS Economics will attract new contributions in order to assess the impact of changing conditions of economy and labour on OHS.
