Asbestos seminar in Brussels, 17-18 September 2012
The EFBWW is currently running a project on asbestos related diseases and its recognition and compensation in European countries. The project is focusing on central and eastern European countries. It is run in collaboration with the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC), the International Ban of Asbestos Secretariat (IBAS) and the World Health Organisation (WHO).
On 17 and 18 September 2012 we organised a seminar in Brussels, bringing together some 80 participants from some 23 countries and representing movements, organisations and institutions, like victims organisations, trade unions, labour inspectorates, researchers, physicians and people from authorities. The seminar was aiming at a better networking between the different stakeholders, to promote the EFBWW asbestos campaign and to raise the voice of all people affected by hazards still coming from the existing asbestos sources in Europe. Beside this the seminar was also used to create contacts for research activities which are also covered by the project. The aim is this research is to collect data on the current legal situation in central and eastern European Countries when it comes to recognition and compensation of asbestos related diseases.
All seminar presentations and a comprehensive report are now available at the website of IBAS.CLICK HERE
The research results will be presented in spring next year.
