On 16 June 2016, a Conference in Brussels gathering 90 participants has taken stock of the achievements of the NEPSI Agreement ten years after its signature.
At the end of the Conference, the NEPSI signatories signed a Joint Declaration confirming their desire to continue working together for enhanced workers’ health protection and to make sure that the NEPSI Agreement has a useful role to play in facilitating compliance with the recently proposed European regulatory measures.
In a video message, Commissioner Thyssen reiterated the European Commission’s support to the NEPSI Agreement, qualifying it as […] "a true testament of 'EU-level social dialogue in action". […] The signature of this Agreement was a crucial step to enhance worker protection across the European Union. […] it has and still is complementing European legislation in the field of worker protection.”
