Purpose and tasks of the network
The BSN aims at bringing the essential country information in OH&S to everybodys reach in constantly transmitting up-to-date information in the Network data sources. It offers an easy and immediate access to country information in the Baltic Sea region also for users in other countries. The Network facilitates the search of information in keeping up useful links to other OH&S information sources.
The BSN is a forum for transmitting and developing good models and good practice guidelines, and for disseminating information on training possibilities in OH&S in the member countries.
In creating permanent contacts between experts and OH&S institutions, the Network can provide support to OH&S authorities when needed, and encourage the countries to develop national networking arrangements in order to strengthen the collaboration between OH&S institutions and organizations and to develop the OH&S infrastructure within each country. Further, the Network offers a framework and stimulation for joint bilateral and multilateral projects among the member countries.
