Fecc Webinar: EU-OSHA Healthy Workplaces Campaign 2020-22, “LIGHTEN THE LOAD – Lessons for Chemical Distributors’ Workplaces”


Thursday 24 June 2021, 14:00-13:00 CET

In October 2020, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) launched its new campaign: "Healthy Workplaces 2020-22: LIGHTEN THE LOAD", for which Fecc succeeded again in becoming an official campaign partner.

The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) is the European Union information agency for occupational safety and health and its work contributes to making Europe a safer, healthier and more productive place to work. The Agency researches, develops, and distributes reliable, balanced, and impartial safety and health information and organises pan-European awareness raising campaigns. Set up by the European Union in 1994 and based in Bilbao, Spain, the Agency brings together representatives from the European Commission, Member State governments, employers’ and workers’ organisations, as well as leading experts in each of the EU Member States and beyond.

Fecc is delighted to co-host a webinar that aims at outlining the main features of the campaign on the prevention and management of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), as well as explore how chemical distributors can enhance safety at the workplace for their teams.

Our speaker includes Brenda O'Brien, Manager of the Brussels Liaison Office at the European Agency for Safety and Health at work (EU-OSHA).
