The National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (INSST) commemorates the 50th anniversary of its creation this year.
Part of the Ministry of Labor and Social Economy, it is the Government's specialized scientific-technical body whose mission is to analyze and study, promote and support the improvement of occupational health and safety. To do this, it establishes necessary partnerships with both regional bodies responsible for this area and other relevant stakeholders.
The INSST is a member of the Spanish Association for Standardization, UNE, since its creation in 1986 and leads the development of key technical standards for occupational health and safety in Spain. This is how the Secretary of the CTN 81 Occupational Health and Safety manages and participates in many others.
INSST and UNE have a collaboration agreement in the areas of standardization, training, dissemination and international cooperation, as well as other areas related to occupational risk prevention.
