||Organizational practices and workplace health and safety: A cross-sectional study in manufacturing companies
||June 2010, Vol.48, No.5, p.562-569. Illus. 27 ref.
||The results of a mail questionnaire addressed to 312 manufacturing firms in the province of Ontario (Canada) are presented. A cross-sectional analysis of workplace level health and safety policies, practices and attitudes was conducted, based upon lost-time frequency rate (LTFR) data. Lower LTFRs were associated with paternalistic initiatives, recording of occupational health and safety (OHS) measures, greater involvement of workers in decision-making and better managerial attitudes concerning the importance of OHS. Other findings are discussed.
