2016–17 Campaign: Healthy Workplaces for All Ages
Safe and healthy working conditions throughout the whole working life are good for workers, business and society as a whole. This is the main message of the European Agency for Safety and Health 2016–17 Healthy Workplaces Campaign.
The 2016–17 Healthy Workplaces Campaign has four key objectives:
- promoting sustainable work and healthy ageing from the start of the working life;
- preventing health problems throughout the working life;
- providing ways for employers and workers to manage occupational safety and health in the context of an ageing workforce; and
- encouraging the exchange of information and good practice.
Why is this campaign so important?
The European workforce is ageing. Retirement ages are rising and working lives are likely to become longer.
Working is good for physical and mental health, and good management of occupational safety and health increases productivity and efficiency. Demographic change can cause problems, but ensuring a sustainable working life helps to meet those challenges.
