ADVOCACY ON OSH RELATED RESEARCH
During the last half year some PEROSH member institutes strongly advocated more attention to topics related to safe and healthy working conditions in the last working programs of HORIZON 2020, the large research frameworkprogram of the European Union. It was a concerted effort in which consolidated comments were given during three rounds on the so called draft working programs. This effort took place in close collaboration with the Swedish Platform on Sustainable Work.
Our comments resulted in the inclusion of several wordings and phrases related to occupational safety and health in the draft texts of the last HORIZON 2020 research working programs which means the research has to take into account also important aspects related to working life.
