I have just contributed to the IV International Forum of Risk Prevention Culture which was organised at the Universities of La Laguna and of Las Palmas through the International Observatory for the Culture of Prevention (OBINTCP) supported by the Government of the Canary Islands and the International Social Security Association. The Forum was held on the 2nd and 3rd March and focused on psychosocial and organisational risks to employee health. An overview of developments Across Europe was given by Sergio Iavicoli, INAIL, and national perspectives were presented by Irene Houtman (the Netherlands) and me (Britain). These presentations informed discussion of developments in the Canary Islands and in wider context of Spain.
