27 Jun Good Practice Awards 2016
Closing Date Extended to 30 September
The Good Practice Awards is one of the main elements of the EU Healthy Workplaces Campaign and this year is designed to highlight the best examples of managing an ageing workforce.
Entries, which are now being taken, should clearly describe how good age management practices have been implemented in the workplace and what has been achieved, including such aspects as:
- how age diversity is considered in OSH management,
- age-sensitive risk assessment and adapting workplaces accordingly,
- the development and implementation of interventions and/or interactive tools for managing an aging workforce, and
- specific measures targeting older workers and/or hazards and risks specific to older workers.
Two Irish winners will be selected from the entries: one from organisations with fewer than 100 employees and one from those with 100 employees or more. They will then go forward to the European leg of the competition where they will be judged against other national winners. If successful at the European stage, winners will receive their awards at a ceremony in the spring of 2017.
The closing date for entries is now 30 September. Full details on how to enter can be found at http://www.hsa.ie/eng/News_Events_Media/News/European_Agency_for_Safety_and_Health_at_Work/Good_Practice_Awards/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
