Supporting the European Pillar of Social Rights with the project ‘Safer and healthier work at any age'

Protecting the interests of all workers, regardless of age, is particularly
important in the context of the European Pillar of Social Rights , which aims
to deliver rights such as equal opportunities and fair working conditions; for
example, one of its 20 principles is ‘Workers have the right to a working
environment adapted to their professional needs and which enables them to
prolong their participation in the labour market.'

At the request of the European Parliament, EU-OSHA carried out a 3-year
investigation into ways of improving workplace safety and health taking into
account the challenges of an ageing workforce. A range of publications produced
as part of the project, as well as a user-friendly data visualisation tool ,
are available.
