Understanding workplace management of safety and health, psychosocial risks and worker participation

In 2009, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work carried out the
first Europe-wide establishment survey on health and safety at the workplace,
the European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER).
Following on from the initial analysis presented in the descriptive overview
report in 2010, four secondary analysis projects have been carried out in 2011.
A recently published report provides an overview of these reports, which focus
on the following issues: Management of health and safety at work; Worker
representation and consultation on health and safety; Factors associated with
effective management of psychosocial risks; Management of psychosocial risks-
drivers, obstacles, needs and measures taken.
