OSHwiki has been developed by EU-OSHA, to enable the sharing of occupational safety and health (OSH) knowledge, information and best practices, in order to support government, industry and employee organisations in ensuring safety and health at the workplace. OSHwiki aims to be an authoritative source of information that is easily updated, edited or translated and reaches beyond the OSH community.
