A new head for the ETUI Working Conditions, Health and Safety Unit

In early October 2017, Marian Schaapman was appointed head of the unit dealing with working conditions and health and safety issues within the ETUI research department.

Marian, who studied law and public administration, previously worked for the Dutch trade union confederation FNV’s Beroepziekten Bureau (Occupational Diseases Office), a unit set up in 2000 to help workers and their families get decent compensation for occupational diseases.

Marian also acquired broad experience in the academic world as a former labour law and policy researcher at the University of Amsterdam’s Hugo Sinzheimer Institute.

She conducted research in a wide range of areas, from occupational diseases and working conditions to gender equality.
