Initiatives & Projects


As part of our work, the participation and implementation of various projects to improve safety and health at work, is one of the lines of work that ENSHPO has in continuous growth and movement.

Currently, one of its great challenges is the unification of the profession at a European level, so that the free mobility of EHS professionals becomes an effective reality.

For this reason, in recent years, our projects have been directed along these lines.

Another of the great challenges we faced was the incorporation of the field of the environment in the workplace, and with its inclusion in our statutes ENSHPO opens a new field of work to continue unifying efforts and knowledge.

ENSHPO has joined to:




An EU funded project on European Qualification for Occupational Safety and Health professionals that looked at OSH professional recognition of competences and qualifications. Given the increase in occupational mobility and the transfer and recognition of qualifications/competences across the EU.

EU funded project on European Qualification for Occupational Safety and Health professionals. The project will enable OSH professionals to achieve recognition of their competences and qualifications and increase their mobility. It will also create flexible instruments to validate, transfer and recognize learning results, ready to be transferred also in the other EU countries where the consortium members are not active.

ESCO PORTAL (from EU documents)

ESCO (European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations) is the European multilingual classification of Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations.

ESCO works as a dictionary, describing, identifying and classifying professional occupations, skills, and qualifications relevant for the EU labour market and education and training. Those concepts and the relationships between them can be understood by electronic systems, which allow different online platforms to use ESCO for services like matching jobseekers to jobs on the basis of their skills, suggesting trainings to people who want to reskill or upskill etc.

The aim of ESCO is to support job mobility across Europe and therefore a more integrated and efficient labour market, by offering a “common language” on occupations and skills that can be used by different stakeholders on employment and education and training topics.

Since 2019 ENSHPO is an ESCO Stakeholder and is collaborating in the reviewing of the EHS occupation description.
