Abstract Future engineers, architects, medical professionals and business administrators and managers will all need to take account of occupational safety and health (OSH) in their working lives. This report presents a variety of cases concerning how OSH has been included in university-level education in the European Union. However, relatively few examples were found where OSH education had been truly embedded within the curriculum of other undergraduate studies, such as a general engineering undergraduate course or a business studies course. courses. By highlighting cases from EU Member States, this report aims to provide practical support for the development of OSH programmes in university education.
