EuroCommerce now official partner of European campaign on health and safety
Press release - Jobs & Skills
17 November 2020
EuroCommerce has been an active participant over the years in campaigns on, for example, healthy aging and dangerous substances organised by the European Occupational Safety and Health Agency OSHA.
EuroCommerce has now committed itself to participate in OSHA’s new 2020-2022 “Lighten the Load” campaign, focused on minimising work-related musculoskeletal disorders.
Retailers and wholesalers are committed to ensuring the safety and health of their employees and avoiding them suffering problems from lifting loads and other risks at work. EuroCommerce has therefore pledged to support communication and dissemination activities under this OSHA Healthy Workplaces Campaign. We will discuss with our trade union colleagues in the Social Dialogue Committee on Commerce sharing best practice in the European retail and wholesale sector.
