||Workers' active involvement in the improvement of occupational safety and health in a textile enterprise - A case study
||1st quarter 2006, Vol.12, No.1, p.69-77. Illus. 11 ref.
||This article describes the implementation of the Polish-Swedish OSHMAN (Occupational safety and health management) project in a Polish textile and clothing plant. The aim of the project was to implement and improve effective health and safety management with the active involvement of workers at all levels of the enterprise. Training courses, workshops and various practical activities were undertaken. As expected, there were changes in work organization and improvements in the way workstations were looked after, which led to improvements in safety performance. Workers were highly committed during the project. Nevertheless it is concluded that more training should be directed at middle management.
