Abstract: This collection presents the attitudes of a subset of respondents who participated in EURO-BAROMETER 39.0: EUROPEAN COMMUNITY POLICIES AND FAMILY LIFE, MARCH-APRIL 1993 (ICPSR 6195) and EURO-BAROMETER 39.1: ENERGY POLICIES, BIOTECHNOLOGY, AND GENETIC ENGINEERING, MAY-JUNE 1993 (ICPSR 6196). The focus of this collection is on health and safety in the workplace. Respondents were queried on their awareness of and involvement in health and safety issues at work, as well as where their knowledge of workplace health and safety was gained, ways to reduce the number of accidents at work, areas in which the European Community (EC) should do more to improve health and safety, and the degree of action the EC should take to guarantee health, safety, and hygiene in the workplace. Respondents were also asked about their knowledge of the European flag and the European Year logo, the main business activity where they worked, the number of hours they worked weekly, political party attachment, and trade union membership. All respondents were actively employed. Demographic characteristics included gender, age, marital status, religious affiliation and practice, subjective membership in social class, education, home ownership, family size, occupation, subjective size of community, and nationality. The dataset includes a number of constructed variables and indices such as opinion leadership, value orientation, typology of European attitudes, socio-professional status, European political party preference, commitment to the Common Market, and media use.
