Secretary General

"Promoting occupational safety and health is a major priority for HOSPEEM, a priority that is even reflected in our 2014-2016 work programme. HOSPEEM is therefore strongly committed to making the Healthy Workplaces campaign a success. Together with the European Federation of Public Service Unions (EPSU), HOSPEEM is currently running a joint EU project aiming to assess the impact in the hospital sector of health and safety hazards, giving special attention to psychosocial risks and stress at work. Being the second most frequently reported occupational hazard across the EU, psychosocial risks and stress at work negatively impact the health and well-being of workers and healthcare institutions. Ensuring safer and healthier working conditions is therefore a major challenge for the healthcare sector. For HOSPEEM, the Healthy Workplaces Manage Stress campaign is an opportunity to exchange information and knowledge and to identify existing good practice in this field."

Mission statement:
The European Hospital and Healthcare Employers’ Association (HOSPEEM) represents national employers’ organisations at the European level that operate in the hospital and healthcare sectors. As a European social partner organisation, HOSPEEM promotes the views of healthcare employers on workforce and industrial relations issues within the sectoral social dialogue committee for the hospital sector. Formed in 2005, HOSPEEM currently has 16 members across the European Union both in the state or regionally controlled hospital sector and in the private health sector.
Our Campaign Pledge:

HOSPEEM will support and give visibility to the EU-OSHA campaign mainly through its website and its newsletter. HOSPEEM will also disseminate information on the campaign and raise awareness on the issue among its member organisations. In addition, a conference focusing on psychosocial risks and stress at work will take place in November 2015 in Helsinki.
