The seventh joint EU-US conference on occupational safety and health issues will be held on 11-13 July in Brussels.
The two and a half-day event will consist of two plenary sessions and four parallel workshops. A special technical session on occupational safety and health statistics will take place on the second day.
Co-operation on occupational safety and health between the European Union and the United States of America has successfully developed since the 1995 New Transatlantic Agenda through permanent dialogue and exchange of information.
Since 1998, two-yearly conferences are jointly organised by the European Commission and the US Department of Labor. They have provided for bilateral fora where topical Occupational Safety and Health related issues are periodically explored with a view to reinforcing the co-operation and fostering the EU-US partnership in this area.
