CIELFFA has been accepted as official partner of the ongoing EU-OSHA health campaign ‘Healthy Workplaces Campaign 2018-2019 – Manage Dangerous Substances’. This is the European Union agency dealing with safety and health at work. The campaign has been successfully implemented for several years in more than 30 countries with more than 100 partners. The current campaign focuses on dealing with hazardous substances in the workplace.

The aim is to work with partner organisations such as CIELFFA to raise awareness of the risks posed by hazardous substances and to promote a culture of risk prevention. We are taking part in the campaign because the issue of 'handling hazardous substances' also plays an important role in our cold rolling mills. Under the umbrella of the ‘Healthy Workplaces Campaign 2018-2019’ CIELFFA intends together with the FVK to organise seminars or workshops on that topic. Many aspects like the legal framework, risk assessment, possible technological and organisational measures to improve safety at work, new and innovative PPE, and how to include temporary workers in the health and safety requirements of companies could be suitable subjects. Suggestions and ideas from members for possible concrete seminar topics are very welcome.
