European Parliament approves report on the mid-term review of the EU strategy for safety and health at work 2007-2012

The Parliament's report highlights the need to protect women, young people,
ageing and migrant workers in Europe's workplaces. MSDs and work related stress
are pointed out as main areas of concern for European enterprises in relation
to OSH.

The report says it is important to help SMEs put in place risk-prevention
policies and stresses the positive role of simple, free and targeted
initiatives, such as the OiRA and considers employee participation to be a
further key factor in successful OSH-related management.
