European Campaign for Safety and Health at Work 2006 - young people... start planning now
The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work has already started planning for the European Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Campaign 2006 - young people:
- Everyone is invited to take part and carryout activities in this decentralised campaign across Europe. Start planning now!
- It will include a Week of activity across Europe in October 2006 (23-27 October, week 43)
The wrong start: young workers have 50% more work accidents than older workers. Their incidence rate of work accidents is going up. The consequence is the tragedy of young lives ruined. Prevention measures include:
- risk awareness education for children
- health and safety in vocational and professional training
- taking account of young people's lack of physical and mental maturity at work
- training at work and supervision
The Right Start: The campaign is:
- promoting risk awareness in children and young people
- promoting the preparation of young people for the health and safety aspects of working life
- promoting quality work for youngsters - safe and healthy workplaces and practices
- supporting networking and information exchange among stakeholders
- supporting the European Youth Pact for employment and education and training
Resources and information
The Agency web page will be developed with resources, information and news about the campaign as it develops.
In the meantime you can find information and resources from the Agency, Member States and worldwide for your own activities in schools, colleges or workplaces at:
Fire, Emergency and Preparedness - are you ready?
Much time is spent these days searching the Internet for validated and authoritative information often resulting in out-of date sources. In this fast moving world it is essential to have quick access to validated, authoritative and constantly updated information collections. The ones brought together and maintained by information specialists are one sure way of getting good quality data.
As new research and new ways of working, with the attendant alterations in products, services and technology developments means that no-one, especially those responsible for fire, emergencies and preparedness in workplaces of all kinds, should be without the latest information.
Searchers should also be aware that the myth abounding in the world that everything is published on the Internet and is free is just not true!
Fire, Emergency and Preparedness Worldwide, arguably the world's premier collection of related validated, authoritative information aims to help all those seeking such information. Emphasis is on all aspects of fire, emergency and preparedness management principles, fire risk assessment, practices and research.
One way to quickly gain access to legislation, guidance and advice that is up-to-date and relevant is to take a 30-day free trial of Fire, Emergency and Preparedness Worldwide that is focused, affordable and easy to use.
Published by Sheila Pantry Associates Ltd., using the powerful SilverPlatter software it is accessible via the Internet Service and also on CD-ROM for those who need access to information but do not have connections to the outside world.
Fire, Emergency and Preparedness Worldwide is the premier collection of validated, authoritative information and contains two major collections - the Full Text Collection and the Bibliographic Collection.
- The Full text Collection has 4 major databases containing thousands of
pages of easily searchable full text documents, which are continually being added
to, thus updating the existing wide-ranging source of critical fire information.
The collection contains all appropriate European and UK legislation for fire and
fire related industry. In addition there is an extensive range of fire and
fire related documents from organisations such as:
- UK Government Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM) Fire and Rescue Directorate
- US National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health
- UK Health and Safety Executive
- Ireland Department of the Environment Fire Safety
- UK Fire Protection Association
- World Fire Statistics Bureau
- CTIF - The International Committee for the Prevention and Extinction of Fire
- The Bibliographic Collection has 7 databases which contain over 240,000 records to journal articles, guidance and advice, circulars, reports, conference proceedings, research reports, statistics and codes of practice from worldwide sources, all of which may be easily accessed. For those organisations that do not subscribe to a range of journals/magazines this is one way of ensuring that the latest news, developments and trends are available. One of the databases - from the British Standards Institution - contains references to over 3000 fire and fire related standards.
The publishers - Sheila Pantry Associates Ltd are committed to maintaining and expanding Fire, Emergency and Preparedness Worldwide, which is arguably the world's best collection of fire and fire related information.
George Collins, Chairman of the Executive Council of the Institute of Fire Prevention Officers says, "This collection of information is extremely valuable for those working in today's risk based fire industry who need up-to-date consultation, guidance and advice"
Used by organisations and fire and rescue services in the UK and around the world, Fire, Emergency and Preparedness Worldwide is set to expand still further!
