This year the International Labour Organisation (ILO) will be focussing on how to optimise the collection and use of OSH data. World Day for Safety and Health and Work will take place on April 28th and this is the theme that will be highlighted.
A new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) has been introduced by the European Commission and will come into force across the EU on 25 May 2018 replacing the existing Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC).
