EU's new global safety and health portal

The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work says its new online
information portal is the first global portal on occupational safety and health
information for people involved in risk prevention at work.

The new website at http://osha.eu.int/ permits you to:

search for information by risk types, sectors or groups;

use an on-line thesaurus in 20 languages when looking for more specialised
terminology, it groups terms by subject and lists all the records containing
the selected keyword;

customise the site to your own requirements in terms of OSH-topics, languages
and countries;

access a good practice section with cases that you may readily implement in
your organisation;

navigate the national sites maintained by the Agency's representations across
Europe and its international partners' sites;

download Agency publications from an on-line library;

focus on noise prevention by having a look at the new noise at work web feature
in support of this year's European Week campaign.

The Agency's Director comments:

"A world of safety and health knowledge is now available right at your
fingertips. I hope that our new information system will lead to improved
workplace health and safety and help reduce the large human and economic toll
paid due to accidents and ill-health at work."
