Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) Second European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks, 2014 (ESENER-2) asks those 'who know best' about safety and health in establishments about the way safety and health risks are managed at their workplace, with a particular focus on psychosocial risks, i.e. work-related stress, violence and harassment. In summer/autumn 2014 a total of 49,320 establishments, across all activity sectors and employing at least five people, were surveyed in the 36 countries. This included the 28 EU Member States (EU-28) as well as Albania, Iceland, Montenegro, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Serbia, Turkey, Norway and Switzerland. Developed with the support of governments and social partners at the European level, ESENER-2 aims to assist workplaces across Europe by better understanding their needs for support and expertise as well as identifying the factors that encourage or hinder action. ESENER explores in detail four areas of occupational safety and health (OSH):The general approach in the establishment to managing OSHHow the ‘emerging’ area of psychosocial risks is addressedThe main drivers and barriers to the management of OSHHow worker participation in OSH management is implemented in practiceFurther information is available on the EU-OSHA ESENER web site. For the second edition (September 2016), the variables covering Q100 (respondent’s function in the organisation), q100_1 to q100_9, have been condensed into a single variable, q100rev, with revised response categories.
