The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work have established a joint website at http://www.useuosh.org/ to provide wider access to job safety and health information available from each agency.
Created as part of the ongoing partnership between the two safety organizations, the website enables those in the European Union (EU) and the United States to obtain information on many safety and health topics of joint interest, such as best practices, statistics and research. The site links visitors to detailed data from each organization. Links to both agencies' individual sites focus particularly on construction safety and ergonomics. At their 1998 conference, the U.S. and the EU agreed to address these topics first on their joint webpage.
"Both OSHA and its EU counterpart have assembled a wealth of information on successful strategies to prevent occupational injuries and illnesses. We're pleased to have a vehicle for sharing information with each other and with the workers and employers we serve," said OSHA Administrator Charles N. Jeffress.
Visitors to the site can view information developed by the EU as well as standards for individual European countries. They can also link to OSHA standards, compliance documents and publications.
