Health & Safety

Over the last decade, the European construction sector has continuously improved its performance in Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), counting less fatal accidents and reducing work-related sickness. However, it still remains one of the most dangerous and high priority sectors of the European economy as the risks are various and dynamic.

EBC advocates for simplifications, the cutting of red tape as well as an improved implementation of existing regulations. Training, awareness raising and information for both employers and workers are key elements for the success of OHS campaigns in the construction sector and should therefore be supported with technical and financial support from European and national institutions.
