The 6th European conference on standardization, testing and certification in the field of occupational safety and health organized by EUROSHNET was held from 12 to 14 June 2019 in Dresden. The conference brought together various stakeholders and provided an excellent opportunity to discuss the changes, challenges and chances currently faced by standardzation, testing and certification.

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 shortage of staff observed for several years has only served to increase exposure to these risks and the sector in France has a much higher occupational accident rate than the national average. Better prevention of these risks is a major challenge, not only in terms of health and safety at work, but also in terms of promoting the long-term employability of staff in this sector faced with the challenges of old age.
The conference will be held in French, but proceedings in English will be published just after the conference which will include most of the contributions.
