Building an asbestos free Europe for workers

This page is also available in

As part of its work to prepare an opinion on the Commission package to better protect people from asbestos and ensure an asbestos-free future, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is organising a hybrid public hearing on 31 October 2022 from 10:00 am to 13 am.
The aim of the event is to gather input from other EU Institutions, civil society and academia on the following questions:

• What are the strengths and weaknesses of the Commission's package?
• What kind of activities do different actors carry out to protect workers from asbestos exposure, and are there any best practices to be shared?
Your participation and input are most welcome!
