Bilbao, Spain – A two-year campaign launched by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work aims to reduce workplace injuries and illnesses by encouraging employers and employees to work together.

The 2012-2013 Healthy Workplaces Campaign will provide guidance on how managers and workers can cooperatively reduce risks that lead to nearly 7 million workplace incidents and millions of work-related diseases each year, according to an EU-OSHA press release.

“The most effective results are achieved if workers and managers join together,” EU-OSHA Director Christa Sedlatschek said in the release.

Launched in April, the decentralized campaign includes activities at the national and European levels.
