8th Edition of the European Conference on personal and household services in Brussels

On January 29th in Brussels, the Consultative Commission on Industrial Change (CCMI) of the European Economic and Social Committee and the European Federation for Services to Individuals (EFSI) co-organised the 8th edition of the European Conference on personal and household services. Our partner Pour La Solidarité took part in this event which key word was innovation.

Following a presentation of the results of a survey conducted by EFSI on this topic, participants discussed about innovatives practices, the role of public authorities  and the impact of new digital technologies on the sector. Eventually, the last panel explored the various risks faced by PHS workers and in particular dangerous substances related risks, as well as the innovative solutions that could be applied to tackle them.

Through the creation of digital training tools, one of the objectives of ATHOME is to decrease these risks encountered by homecare workers daily.
