Welcome to the AGROSH+ Website

Tractor_1The project “OSH+ for the European Agriculture sector - Stimulating growth in rural areas through capacity building for providers (and beneficiaries) of occupational medicine and OSH services” – AGROSH+ (further on referred as the AGROSH+ project) aims to enhance the knowledge and expertise of those OSH experts (occupational medicine doctors and safety engineers ) who are providing their services to enterprises unfolding their activities within the agriculture sector (multiple sub-sectors comprised)

The idea of this project is stemming in an analysis developed at national level (though in 5 countries – Bulgaria, Greece, Ireland, Spain, and Romania), and performed by ROMTENS Foundation with the support of its partners; the analysis revealed that there is a stringent need for specifically adapted and crafted knowledge, articulated as training packages, for Occupational Safety and Health experts and Occupational Medicine Physicians providing services to the agriculture sector.

Once this conclusion was drawn, ROMTENS Foundation and its partners (Institute of Preventive Medicine Environmental and Occupational Health - PROLEPSIS from Greece, Foundation "Center for Safety and Health at Work“ - FCBZR from Bulgaria, The Victor Babeş University of Medicine and Pharmacy Timisoara - UMFVBT from Romania and Work Research Centre Ireland Ltd - WRC from Ireland) decided to bring together their expertise in the Occupational Safety and Health and Occupational Medicine domains and design a project that will aim to gather, adapt and adjust knowledge from each partner so as to address the identified and assessed  need. As a result the AGROSH+ project proposal was assembled and submitted successfully for funding in March 2016, in Romania, to the ERASMUS+ program / Strategic Partnerships / Training.

The project started on the 1st of September 2016 and it will end on the 31st of August 2018. AGROSH+ wants to cast a different perspective on the Occupational Safety & Health services provided to companies in agriculture by enhancing the competences of the services’ providers (occupational medicine doctors and OSH experts); the two training courses, one for each of the professional categories mentioned, will be developed by taking into account the peculiarities of the agriculture-based workplaces (from occupational risks to occupational diseases) and tested with experts who are currently involved in providing such services to rural companies. These two training courses, together with a Guideline dedicated to end-users, do represent the most important outcomes of our project.
