Abstract Future engineers, architects, medical professionals, business administrators and managers will all need to take account of OSH in aspects in their working lives. This report presents a variety of cases across European countries illustrating how OSH has been included in university-level education. Of most interest were examples where OSH was embedded in the programme of other undergraduate studies, such as a general engineering undergraduate course or a business studies course. However, only few examples were found where OSH education had been truly embedded within the curriculum of individual courses.
