The Committee for prevention and protection at work (CPPT) recently agreed on the need to request more detailed information – including technical data and the proof that staff have been consulted and agreed with the project – before giving an opinion on two requests to transform office space into an open-plan  environment.
This agreement was made possible by the constructive approach and collaboration of the whole committee. Generation 2004, which is represented in the CPPT by Łukasz Wardyn (the committee’s Vice chair), Monia Fanciulletti and Zahouani Saadaoui commend the work of all CPPT members for their commitment to safeguarding the health and safety of Commission staff.
Now that the vast majority of staff have been working from home for almost one year and the office seems a distant memory, the work of the CPPT, through a sound application of the legal basis, is all the more important.
The role of the CPPT will become even more pivotal in the coming months, as the Commission intends to move towards new ways of working and new office arrangements. While innovation is welcome, the CPPT has an important role in making sure that it does not come at the price of a compromise on our health and safety.
