||The occupational safety and health scorecard - A business case example for strategic management
||Nov. 2009, Vol.35, No.6, p.413-420. Illus. 33 ref.
||The objective of this study was to develop and validate a method for evaluating the contribution of occupational safety and health to enterprise value. Financial data and data on workers' health were collected from a German automobile manufacturer in order to test which health-related indicators had an impact on financial performance. Based on multivariate regression analyses, health-related interventions were found to contribute significantly to performance factors such as quality, productivity, absenteeism and cost reduction. The Balanced Scorecard approach was found to be an adequate means to control OSH issues within the context of overall enterprise strategic management.
