Work Accidents Know NO Borders
Stay safe and healthy while posted to work abroad
OSH e-Observatory provides information and evidence-based analysis of data on occupational safety and health of posted workers in the EU. The purpose of e-Observatory is to collect and enhance relevant information for stakeholders (posted workers, employers, competent public authorities, trade unions, employers' associations, NGOs), researchers and media about the overlooked issue of OSH in the context of posting abroad to provide services. The e-Observatory is co-created and regularly updated by a group of researchers involved in the EaSI-Progress funded project POOSH - Occupational Safety and Health of Posted Workers, with the intention to enhance access to information and inform public and policy debates on the issue.
