Description

  • Abstract

    The European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER) ask establishments about the way they manage occupational safety and health (OSH) in practice, with a particular focus on psychosocial risks, i.e. work-related stress, violence and harassment. ESENER-3 was conducted in spring and summer 2019 in establishments with five or more employees from both private and public organisations across all sectors of economic activity except for private households (NACE T) and extraterritorial organisations (NACE U). In total, 45,420 establishments were surveyed across 33 European countries— the respondent being ‘the person who knows best about health and safety in the establishment’. By country, the samples ranged from about 450 in Malta to 2,250 in France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom. Data were collected through computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI). Fieldwork was carried out by Kantar Public and its network of fieldwork centres across Europe. Samples were drawn according to a disproportional sample design which was later redressed by weighting. The questionnaire was developed by a team comprising experts in survey design and in OSH (particularly psychosocial risks), together with EU-OSHA staff and it explores in detail four areas of OSH: (1) the general approach in the establishment to managing OSH, (2) how the ‘emerging’ area of psychosocial risks is addressed, (3) the main drivers and barriers to the management of OSH and (4) how worker participation in OSH management is managed in practice.
