Abstract Organizations deal with occupational safety and health (OSH) in different ways. Some have little expertise in OSH and simply react to occupational accidents, work-related diseases and absenteeism as they arise. Others strive to manage OSH more systematically and proactively by mainstreaming OSH into the organization's overall management. This fact sheet summarizes a report aimed at providing information on how OSH can be incorporated into general business management. The report comprises a literature review, an overview of related policies and examples of good practice. This fact sheet is also available in several other European languages.
