Consilia on EU work safety and human rights briefs

Whitehall-based agency Consilia has picked up comms contracts for the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (OHSA) and The European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC).

The OHSA brief aims to bring businesses in the new member states – Malta, Cyprus and eastern European countries – up to EU-approved levels of health and safety at work. The focus of the six-month campaign will be an interactive website, available in all member states' languages.

The EUMC deal will see Consilia provide three years of strategic comms as the centre prepares to be transformed into the EU Fundamental Human Rights Agency. The change was mandated by the European Council two years ago, to make practicable the decrees of its Human Rights charter.

Consilia declined to reveal the fees attached to either account but said they were 'significant'.

The OHSA brief was won after a six-way pitch.  EUMC would
not reveal how many agencies pitched for the account.

Both bodies report to the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
