In an ever-changing world of work, the promotion of the health and safety of the present and future workforce is crucial for guaranteeing a healthier, longer and more productive working life. In order to ensure the quality of work and employment in Europe, a well-coordinated approach to occupational safety and health research rising above regional and national boundaries is needed. Therefore, the PEROSH partners aim to coordinate and cooperate on European research and development efforts in occupational safety and health. The network comprises 14 Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) institutes, all playing key roles in their national affiliations to governments/authorities and health and accident insurance systems.

Steering committee

The Steering Committee (SC) consists of the general directors of the 14 PEROSH Member Institutes and is responsible for the strategic management of PEROSH. This includes the decisions on the specific knowledge sharing initiatives, the promotion of joint research and development of joint projects. Furthermore, the SC discusses the inclusion of new members, the appointment of the chairperson and the vice-chairperson of the SC, the establishment and mandate of the Scientific Steering group and working groups. They agree on the annual budget and approve the annual account of revenue and expenditures.
