The proceedings of the symposium "Reviewing the prevention of occupational risks: a challenge for sustainable development", held on 25 June 2010 and organised jointly by the Agency and the Sustainable Development Chair at Sciences Po, are now online. The event was an opportunity for some ten leading speakers to review the status and current thinking on the scientific, economic, legal and organisational aspects governing prevention of occupational risks, on changes in European occupational health policies, and, based on the example of corporate social responsibility, on companies' initiatives and strategies in this area.

This symposium is part of a multi-year partnership agreement which has now been established between ANSES (formerly AFSSET) and the Sustainable Development Chair at Sciences Po, which offers a broader perspective on health risk issues. This agreement covers three categories of activity: coordinating exchanges with companies involved in sustainable development, conducting studies involving students from Sciences Po on topics of common interest, and stimulating public debate through the organisation of conferences.

This partnership is being managed within ANSES by the Risks and Society Unit of the Department of Information, Communication and Dialogue with Society.
