Title Work improvement and occupational safety and health management systems: Common features and research needs
Bibliographic information Apr. 2002, Vol.40, No.2, p.121-133. Illus. 50 ref.
Abstract This review article discusses the experiences of various Asian countries with respect to the implementation of occupational safety and health management systems. Examples are provided from recent work improvement projects dealing with technology transfer, small workplaces and rural areas. These experiences clearly show that locally adjusted procedures for risk assessment and control must be developed. Research is needed to find effective ways of encouraging voluntary control at the workplace, practical methods for local risk assessment and the types of participatory steps leading to continual improvements in the local context.
