||The aim of this study was to establish whether the German occupational safety and health (OSH) management guidelines are applicable to the retail sector. A pilot project was undertaken to examine their applicability within the REWE group, one of the largest German retailers. Benchmarking the REWE OSH management system against the five main dimensions of the national OSH management guidelines showed that important improvements are necessary. Several recommendations are made for improving the system in the retail sector.
