The EU REFIT agenda threatens health and safety at work and working conditions
On 27 May the EFBWW Executive Committee adopted a statement on the so called EU Smart Regulation agenda under the REFIT programme. In the statement, the EFBWW underlines that occupational safety and health (OSH) legislation is not detrimental to the business community, but establishes transparent and equal competitive conditions for the EU business community, while protecting workers from exploitation and poor occupational health and safety standards. The EFBWW states that the Smart Regulation agenda is ideologically based and is not aimed at making legislation efficient, but is an attempt to roll back the role of the legislator based on the belief that enterprises are able to perform self-regulation. . The statement is available in the following languages: English, French, German, Danish, Italian, Spanish and Dutch.
