To find out what goes on in veterinary practices, the survey “Veterinary occupational safety and health in small animal practices” drafted and finalized by Jovana Vidovic (our former stagiaire) was sent out to the FVE members between November – December 2019.

Replies were received from 41 respondents from 12 European countries, namely France, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland, the Netherlands and the UK.

The survey aimed to get an overview of how occupational safety and health laws for animal veterinary practitioners were implemented in different European countries and potentially discover the best OSH practices.
