On 11 and 12 May 2014, the directors of the 12 PEROSH institutes gathered in Paris to discuss the progress of PEROSH’s joint research projects and the strategic orientations of PEROSH.
The Steering Committee was pleased to witness the considerable progress made in the ongoing nine research projects.
The Steering Committee also approved the launch of four new PEROSH research projects which will aim to:
– Strengthen the network’s capacity for forecasting future research priorities.
– Share information on the integration of ambient intelligence solutions for safety and health.
– Generate a common framework for technical measurements of physical work demands and physical activity.
– Broaden the application of health impact assessment models for occupational respiratory diseases.
Thanks to the participation of Mr William Cockburn, Acting Head of the Prevention and Research Unit at the European Agency for Safety and Health (EU-OSHA), the Steering Committee was pleased to be informed of the EU-OSHA 2014-15 work programme and discussed potential areas of collaboration between PEROSH and EU OSHA.
