Our campaign pledge
SMEunited is committed to support the 'Safe and healthy work in the digital age 2023-2025' campaign in cooperation with European Social Partners and all relevant stakeholders. We will echo the messages of the campaign with all our members, representing more than 24 million SMEs and crafts from more than 30 countries in Europe. Raising awareness on digitalisation and its opportunities and challenges is a fundamental pillar of healthy workplaces in the future and SMEunited is honoured to support OSHA and the European Commission with their campaign.
SMEunited Secretary General
Our SMEs are going digital and we aim to ensure that they seize opportunities in a way that respects entrepreneurs and workers needs, which requires anticipating change and developing digital skills. Awareness raising on the benefits and challenges of digitalisation has to be highlighted as an element of prevention, to ensure that SMEs and their workers can use digital technologies to improve health and safety at work.
