New Healthy Workplaces campaign: "Lighten the Load" 

Muskulo-Skeletal Disorders (MSDs) caused at work are of direct concern for our industry and can lead to a wide range of health problems, which in the end, can impact the overall well-being of construction workers. For these reasons Health and Safety at the workplace remains a top priority for FIEC, with the aim of further developing a good culture of prevention amongst companies and to ensure that rules and legislation remain manageable for businesses of all sizes, in particular SMEs, and can effectively be monitored on the ground. Health and Safety is a top priority in the framework of our sectoral Social Dialogue because particularly in our industry, in order to be effectively implemented on the worksites, appropriate measures need to be constantly assessed and improved jointly by employers and workers. In this respect the OSHA Campaigns constitute a very useful framework, which allows us to continuously progress towards our goals.
