TNO WON EU OSHA CONTRACT

A consortium of TNO (NL) and VVA (IT) complemented with IWH (CA) have won the EUOSHA contract on the ‘Estimation of costs of work-related injuries, illnesses and deaths’. This project follows up on a previous contract in which TNO and partners assessed the availability and quality of the required data sources in 30 European countries. In the current project, the consortium will draw up a cost calculation model and collect OSH data and economic data in five selected European countries. For these countries the costs of the work-related burden of disease will be estimated. Apart from the monetary aspects, life and health impacts will be valued as well.
