Abstract Practical and detailed recommendations for the integration of OSH management within the overall management of small and medium sized enterprises in Spain having modern management capacity. A total of 33 enterprises from 7 industrial sectors in the Spanish region of Galicia were analysed for the efficiency of their OSH management practices. Overall, the best results were obtained in enterprises that had instituted an OSH programme in a step-by-step fashion after having performed a thorough risk evaluation programme of the whole enterprise. The integration of OSH management within the general management of the enterprise was also a positive factor.
