Every year thousands of workers die in the European agriculture, hundreds of thousands are injured and many fall ill. Our industries are still the most dangerous of all industries worldwide and in Europe.

EFFAT and its member unions reaffirm the importance of occupational health and safety for employees in European agriculture.
