Abstract: Work-related harm to health imposes a significant burden on national economies; occupational accidents, and premature mortality and work incapacity can cause losses of 3-5% and 10-15% of the gross national product, respectively. The WHO Regional Office for Europe, in collaboration with the International Labour Office (ILO), the Commission of the European Communities, and the Centre of Industrial Hygiene and Occupational Disease in Prague, organized a meeting to explore the need and opportunities for concerted action by international organizations in the field of occupational safety and health in Europe and to identify areas for intensified cooperation. The participants included European experts and representatives of organizations concerned with occupational safety and health, as well as WHO and ILO staff. The participants recommended that an occupational safety and health strategy and action plan for Europe be developed and implemented, and that it be supported by WHO Member States, the European Union and other European bodies and organizations to ensure its success
