A cooperation agreement between Greece's employment and social security ministry and the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) was signed on Tuesday by deputy minister Vassilis Kegeroglou.

The accord contains the entirety of the planned annual actions in safety and health at work to be implemented at national level in promotion of the European organisation's task.

The actions are separated into four basic categories that include networking with the authoritative agencies at national and European level and participation in the OSHA programs; advisory actions through participation in research and studies being carried out and sharing of information, statistics, experience and knowhow; webpage management for providing online information to citizens on safety and health at work issues; and public awareness and information actions, including employers, employees and their representatives, representatives of the social partners, individuals involved in work safety and health, and also the general public.
