Abstract Future engineers, architects, medical professionals and business administrators and managers will all need to take account of occupational safety and health (OSH) aspects in their working lives. This fact sheet summarizes a report which demonstrates that there are more challenges to integrating OSH into university-level education compared with other levels of education. However, the cases presented also show that steps are being taken to mainstream OSH into university education in a variety of disciplines and in a variety of ways. The fact sheet is also available in several other European languages.
