PEROSH (Partnership for European Research in Occupational Safety and Health)
In an ever-changing world of work, the promotion of the health and safety of the present and future workforce is crucial for guaranteeing a healthier, longer and more productive working life. In order to ensure the quality of work and employment in Europe, a well-coordinated approach to occupational safety and health research rising above regional and national boundaries is needed. Therefore, the PEROSH partners aim to coordinate and cooperate on European research and development efforts in occupational safety and health. The network comprises 14 Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) institutes, all playing key roles in their national affiliations to governments/authorities and health and accident insurance systems.
Our mission: PEROSH creates and exchanges new knowledge and practice on occupational safety and health (OSH) and makes it accessible to policy makers, workplaces and other stakeholders in Europe.
Our vision: Policy makers, workplaces and other stakeholders across Europe are inspired by and use knowledge generated by PEROSH in their efforts to develop innovative and sustainable workplaces which arehealthy and safe. PEROSH seeks impact and adds value through the exchange of knowledge and good practices across Europe to the benefit of all.

underpins decisions by national and European
policymakers on healthy and safe working lives
