Meeting in Bilbao on 26 and 27 November 2002, the European Agency for Safety
and Health at Work’s Administrative Board has elected Dr Bertil Remaeus as its
new chairperson and approved the Agency’s work programme for 2003.

risks at the workplace and to start preparatory work for the 2004 European Week
