More NAPO films

Napo films have proved to be excellent tools to address different Occupational Safety and Health issues.

Now a new set of clips is available aimed at dealing with Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs). These clips are "multilingual" and "multicultural" so can be used in any country to face Occupational Safety and Health issues through a kind approach.

Worth sharing them!

Employment and working conditions of migrant workers

Eurofound has issued a report on Employment and working conditions of migrant workers.

This report confirms the evidence that immigrants play an increasingly important role in the labour markets of EU Member States

In most countries, migrant people face higher unemployment rates and tend to be segregated in unskilled occupations and exposed to higher risks of over-qualification. As immigrants today are often educated, this represents a significant waste of human capital, and a strong form of inequality.

However there is room for optimism, based on the improvement of immigrants employment and working conditions based on the raising of self-employment and assigment to more skilled jobs.

An interesteing report worth reading.
