The PEROSH Scientific Steering Group and the PEROSH coordinators of the joint research projects convened in Oslo between 24 and 26 April 2019. Our host was STAMI, our Norwegian member. All joint research projects in the PEROSH project portfolio were discussed regarding progress and realised outcome and impact. Have a look at our PEROSH projects webpage for a complete overview.
The current research portfolio with 10 running projects demonstrates that PEROSH researchers have a keen interest to develop recommendations in harmonised measuring of exposures in the workplaces either related to physical exposures or exposures to dangerous substances. Exposure measurements vary enormously amongst European countries; think e.g. of taking samples to measure the exposure to dangerous substances. Therefore it is important to come to a mutual understanding of the differences and try to bridge these. PEROSH strives to provide the evidence base for OSH policies in Europe, therefore intersubjective agreement on exposure measurements is crucial.
Furthermore, we discussed 5 new ideas for joint projects. These will all start with a kick-off workshop to discuss the feasibility of a joint research project where at least three PEROSH members should commit themselves to provide resources.
