European conference Preventing occupational risks in the healthcare sector for the dependent elderly

New date: 9 March 2021, Paris (France)

Whether they be self-employed, employees of a service provider or an institution (e.g. a dependent old people's home), the personnel devoted to healthcare for the dependent elderly are faced with multiple occupational risks: physical, chemical, biological, psychosocial, etc. The staff shortages noted for some years now merely aggravate the exposure to these risks and this sector posts a rate of occupational injuries far higher than the national average in France. In addition to a major immediate occupational health and safety challenge, in the long run better occupational risk prevention promotes the employability of these personnel faced with the challenges of old age. In view of the coronavirus pandemic, the programme as it was agreed will be reviewed to include the issue of the health crisis that has impacted the elderly care sector. 

The objective of the EUROGIP Discussions (Les Débats d'EUROGIP) is to present examples of public policies and good health and safety practices implemented at European level with regard to what is being done in France.
