Lighten the load! – FIEC official partner in the next Healthy Workplaces campaign
Again, FIEC has been recognised as official partner of this new campaign by the EU-OSHA!
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.

The European Parliament’s Transport Committee is currently drafting a report addressing the forthcoming revision of the Transeuropean Transport Network (TEN-T) Regulation. In its session on 3 September, MEPs emphasised the need for a rapid completion of the network stressing that the European Recovery Plan should support investment in the TEN-T. Moreover, MEPs highlighted the need for maintaining good quality when it comes to road and railway infrastructure. Related to that, a European plan to supervise the network should be established.
