10th European Work Hazards Network Conference 2006

29th September – 1st October 2006; Baltic Beach Hotel, Jurmala, Latvia

Topic Workshop 3: Diversity, Health and Safety at Work.

Whose health and safety is it anyway?

Facilitated by Jane Paul, England, and Gea Breet, Netherlands

Workshop outline

This workshop will look at

  • the challenges facing us in improving health and safety at work for an increasingly diverse workforce

  • the opportunities that exist for developing strategic approaches to the treatment of diversity in occupational health and safety (OSH)

  • the key principles underpinning the diversity agenda

  • strategies and practical steps that could help take the equality and diversity agenda forward in workplaces in different parts of Europe

  • examples of good practice, and lessons learned from experience in different countries

There will be opportunities for group activities, contributions and discussion of shared experiences. At the end of the workshop there will be time for action planning. Participants will be able to identify action points for government, trade unions and employers in the context of their own national situations as well as for Europe as a whole.
