Occupational health and safety risks for the most vulnerable workers

IP/A/EMPL/ST/2010-03 - PE 464.436

Study requested by the European Parliament's Committee on Employment and Social Affairs



Each of the groups of workers studied – women, ageing workers, workers with disabilities, young workers, migrant workers, temporary workers and low-qualified workers – faces specific occupational health and safety risks. While the EU has a strong body of legislation and a comprehensive strategy addressing worker health and safety, further action could be taken to protect vulnerable groups. Options are proposed, drawing on the analysis of needs as well as a review of specific measures implemented in the Member States.
