EFBWW-FIEC joint declaration on EU strategic framework on OSH at work


With the Communication COM(2021)323 final, the European Commission presented its new Strategic Framework on health and safety at work for the period 2021 to 2027 (here below the “Strategic Framework”). With reference to the subsidiarity principle and reflecting on the fact that Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) is always specific, depending on the type of activity, environment, material and technology used, and other factors, the European Commission is repeatedly pointing on the important role of Social Dialogue in all planning, evaluation and execution of OSH measures. With this joint declaration, EFBWW and FIEC, the European Sectoral Social Partner for the construction industry, provide their views on this Strategic Framework, bearing in mind the specificities of the construction sector.
