Advisory Committee on Health & Safety resumes work on standardization

The Advisory Committee for Safety and Health at Work (ACSH) is a tripartite body that enables cooperation between national authorities, trade unions and employers. The main task of the ACSH is to provide input to the European Commission for the preparation, implementation and evaluation of legislative activities in the field of occupational safety and health (OSH) and OSH-related policies.

In 2024, the ACSH revived its Working Party (WP) on Standardization, and its members will monitor and provide opinion on the alignment of European and international standards and the EU legislation on Occupational Safety and Health.


The ETUC forms part of the Workers Interest Group in WP Standardization, which is tasked with identifying priorities for which international standardization work on OHS risks that arise from climate change seems to be important. The ETUC welcomes the reactivation of the WP on Standardization and looks forward to a good collaboration with the employers and national authorities in this work.
