European Safety Week 2013 takes place week commencing 21 October 2013.
The theme of the week which is the same as the 2012 theme [Safety Week themes operate on a two year cycle] is “Working Together for Risk Prevention”.
According to Eurostat, 5,000 people annually lose their life in the EU as a result of accidents.

The National Irish Safety Organisation encourages you and your organisation to participate in the campaign with the following suggestions:
- Support an awareness campaign in your workplace by downloading free campaign leaflets and posters
- Access free downloads of the European campaign guide which included presentations to help you tailor talks or presentations
