Specific groups

The European workforce is diverse, and so too are the needs of its workers. Healthy workplaces recognise these specific needs during risk assessment and when implementing prevention strategies.

Women, young workers, migrant workers and temporary workers are among those most likely to be at risk from dangerous substances. This might be because they are inexperienced, uninformed or physically more vulnerable, or because they frequently change jobs, or work in sectors where awareness of the issue is low.

The guidance, case studies and good practice examples we have collected demonstrate how the specific needs of groups at risk can be managed in your workplace.
