Abstract Diversity and diversity management in the workplace are important issues in occupational safety and health today. However, diversity has seldom been studied from the perspective of risk assessment. Practical risk assessment tools that take into account the specific risks faced, for instance by people with disabilities, migrant workers, older workers, women and temporary workers, are still rare. This fact sheet presents the key findings of a report describing why and how risk assessment can and should cover the whole workforce, aimed at increasing awareness about the importance of assessing the risks for all workers. The fact sheet is also available in several other European languages.
