La dématérialisation de l’information, la multiplicité des sources et l’hyperconnexion font qu’il est parfois difficile pour tout un chacun d’avoir l’assurance de la fiabilité du résultat des recherches.
L’offre du site « » constitue à ce titre une référence internationale documentaire en matière de santé et sécurité au travail et donne accès au plus grand nombre à des démarches ainsi qu’à des outils élaborés dans différents pays.   
L’ouverture aux pratiques au-delà des frontières constitue également une richesse pour tous les acteurs de la prévention des risques professionnels »

"Bei allem was in Unternehmen und Organisationen möglich ist, ist die Gesundheit und Sicherheit der Menschen die natürliche Grenze dessen was machbar ist. Sicherheit und Gesundheit bei der Arbeit sind entsprechend die Lebensadern einer jeden Organisation, die als selbstverständlicher Indikator für die unternehmerische Entwicklung in die betrieblichen Prozesse integriert und laufend fortentwickelt werden. Durch eine ganzheitliche Gefährdungsbeurteilung wird entsprechend nicht nur für die Sicherheit und Gesundheit der Mitarbeitenden Sorge getragen, sondern es ist auch eine Investition in die Leistungsfähigkeit und Sicherung des unternehmerischen Erfolgs."

André Große-Jäger, Referatsleiter, Bundesministerium für Arbeit und Soziales

"Sono arrivato all’Hotel Danieli nel 2000 come Facchino du Notte. Ho avuto la fortuna di fare sia il Room Service che il manutentore. Sono stato calpito dal fatto che l’azienda mette in primo piano la siccurezza dei luoghi e dei lavoratori.
La cosa piu importante per me è che ho imparato capire che la siccurezza è in anzitutto individuale e dopo collettiva. Questa presa di coszienza mi ha convinto a approfondir le mie conoscenze della materia. Oggi sono volontario del primo soccorso alla Misericordia di Venezia. La mia idea resta che: “Nessuno deve morire nel luogo di lavoro”."
