Focal Point Network

The main safety and health information network is made up of a focal point in each EU Member State, as well as in Candidate Countries and EFTA countries.  Focal points are nominated by each government as the Agency's official representative in that country, and they are normally the national authority for safety and health at work.

Working with national networks including government, workers' and employers' representatives, the focal points provide information and feedback which help to support Agency initiatives.

The Focal Points also manage the national Agency websites, organise the annual European Week for Safety and Health at Work, and nominate representatives to Expert Groups.

The Health and Safety Authority is the EU Focal Point for Ireland.
