ECU is official partner in EU’s healthy workplaces campaign

The ECU is delighted to have been accepted as an official partner for the EU-OSHA Healthy Workplaces Lighten the Load campaign, which is focussed on work related musculoskeletal disorders. EU-OSHA is the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work.

The campaign is organised into several priority areas, with special communication and promotion packs being made available throughout. Materials include reports, infographics, infosheets and case studies.

Declaring the ECU’s support, ECU President Vasileios Gkolfinopoulos said:

‘Musculoskeletal conditions are the greatest cause of disability in Europe and they are not just conditions of older age: between one in three and one in five people (including children) live with a musculoskeletal pain condition. We can reduce the burden of disability experienced by too many people across Europe, and the associated social and economic costs this imposes on them as well as society more widely, if we put a greater focus on musculoskeletal health. Ensuring our workplaces are safe and healthy is an essential part of this process.’
