Mainstreaming OSH into business management
Organisations deal with occupational safety and health (OSH) in different ways: some organisations have little expertise in OSH and react to problems such as occupational accidents, work-related diseases and absenteeism in an ad hoc way, while others strive to manage OSH more systematically, and even proactively, by implementing OSH into the organisation's overall management.
The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work has recently published a report that aims to provide evidence and information on how OSH can be incorporated into general management and business, thereby achieving safer and healthier working environments, and better general organisational performance.
This report comprises three main parts, each with a different specific focus:
- a literature review,
- an overview of related policies, and
- a report of case studies and good practice.
Readers should refer to the appropriate sections of the report for more detailed discussions and further information about each area.
