Self-assessment tool for OSH Management

Aiming at identifying the gaps and needs of extractive SMEs and micro enterprises the Project on Occupational Health and Safety covered not only the traditional but also the new and emerging risks to occupational safety and health. The knowledge gathered has been used to develop training material and self-assessment tools to help employees comply with and to raise awareness for occupational health and safety legislation. 

The main deliverables promote the safe and healthy behavior and provide useful information on how to deal with the most common risks present on site. Finally, the project allowed for creating a network of collaboration among the representatives of employers and those of employees in five Member States.

Climate ambitions and metal needs – opportunities for Sweden and the Swedish mining industry

The most important driving force for increased demand for many metals until 2050 will be the climate transition. The English version of the new Svemin's report 'Climate ambitions and metal needs – opportunities for Sweden and the Swedish mining industry' was launched during the Raw Materials Week 2021. The level of climate policy ambition will therefore be directly related to the availability of raw materials. “The faster we want to switch to a net zero society, the higher the demand for metals,” says Katarina Nilsson, project manager for the study.
