  • Ageing at Work Website - HR Health Management for Older Workers
    Link: www.ageingatwork.eu
    AGEING AT WORK is a two year project (2008-2009) funded by the Leonardo da Vinci programme of the European Commission and aims to develop, test and promote a training concept for HR professionals on age management, with a particular focus on health. As our European society and workforce is ageing, there is an emerging need for attention on age management in organisations. More specifically, HR Management needs to tackle the health problems that come along with a workforce growing older. AGEING AT WORK puts ‘integrated workplace health management’ forward as a solution: this approach provides strategies that HR professionals can apply in order to retain older workers in the workforce for longer. In a first phase, a questionnaire survey of user needs will be undertaken in Belgium, the Netherlands, Ireland and Poland. In addition, a literature review on the concerning topics (older workers and age management, workplace health management) will be carried out. Based on the outcomes of the needs analysis and literature review, a training will be developed in a second phase. This training addresses HR professionals from all businesses (all branches, public or private), and will exist of a face-to-face training course as well as an integrated e-learning support environment. The training concept will be tested in Belgium, the Netherlands and Poland through a pilot training.

  • European Agency for Safety and Health at Work
    Link: http://osha.europa.eu/en/
    Workers and employers need to be made aware of the risks that they face, and how to manage them. But health and safety bodies in the individual EU Member States cannot do this alone. That is why the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work was set up, in 1996. Its mission is to make Europe's workplaces safer, healthier and more productive. They do this by bringing together and sharing knowledge and information, to promote a culture of risk prevention. Located in Bilbao, Spain, the Agency have a dedicated staff of occupational safety and health (OSH), communication and administrative specialists. At the national level, the Agency is represented through a network of focal points, which are usually the lead OSH bodies in the individual Member States. The Agency is a tripartite organisation, meaning that it works with governments, employers and workers representatives. It is a single reference point for OSH information. The Agency also commissions, collects and publishes new scientific research and statistics on OSH risks.
