Abstract

The EuroWorsafe web aims at improving access to and use of large amounts of data related to the sector of health protection of workers and workplace safety. These data are presently available in many European public sector organisations, including research institutes, public health institutions and hospitals. The wide diffusion of this information would be of crucial interest for many organisations, citizens, workers, and companies to reduce risks from health hazards and to improve prevention and safety measures to contribute to the reduction of occupational cancer incidence. The access to and use of such data are often limited to scientific bodies and hampered by several barriers including language, data format, location at different organisations and non-accessibility on the internet. EuroWorksafe intends to overcome such problems by the establishment of a pan-European distributed database and the design and development of set based access services to allow the exploitation of available contents in the addressed domain and the evolving semantic web architecture based on meta-data modelling techniques, knowledge extraction methods and tools, web-based data access and semantic processing.
