See http://ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?langId=en&catId=699&consultId=13&furtherConsult=yes According to the EC, the main purpose of the consultation is to obtain comments on the results of the evaluation of the European Strategy on Safety and Health at Work 2007-2012. The EC states that "[t]his should help identify current and future challenges in the occupational safety and health area, and identify solutions to address these challenges." The EC staff working document highlights five main challenges, including "[i]dentifying the health and safety risks of new or emergent risks. Concerns about nanomaterials, endocrine disruptors and electromagnetic field hazards have been expressed and documented." The EC states that it particularly seeks comments from Member State public authorities, social partner organizations, and stakeholders and experts with an interest in the area of occupational safety and health. Comments are due August 26, 2013.
