Foundation of a European Partnership in Occupational Safety and Health Research

Twelve national research institutes have founded a Partnership for European
Research in Occupational Safety and Health (PEROSH). Current members are
institutes from the Netherlands, Belgium, Great Britain, France, Spain, Italy,
Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Germany.

PEROSH aims at an intensive exchange of information between the institutes and
intends to promote co-operation. Furthermore, the network shall strongly defend
the interests of national and European research in occupational safety and
health. Several thematic networks will be established in order to support
research on issues of particular interest. In a first step, expert groups will
be set up for the topics work organisation, risk perception and risk management
as well as identification of new themes and demands in occupational safety and
health.
