The project is addressing the domains of Occupational Safety and Health and Occupational Medicine by particularizing them to the sector of agriculture.

According to 2012 data of EUROSTAT/ESAW for EU-28, agriculture occupies the 4th place (out of 22 NACE categories analyzed) in terms of number of both non-fatal and fatal accidents. In the same time statistics for occupational diseases are showing a fairly similar situation, agriculture is the 4th responsible sector work-related producing sick leaves in EU-28 (EUROSTAT/ESAW).

Therefore, the general objective of the project is to enhance the knowledge and expertise of those OSH experts (safety engineers and occupational physicians) who are in charge with providing OSH services (occupational safety & occupational medicine services) to enterprises working within the agriculture sector (multiple sub-sectors comprised).
