It is based on the findings of a survey conducted among SMEs certified according to ISO 9001. Of the 46 enterprises surveyed, seven also applied for and obtained OHSAS 18001 certification. The motivations for this additional certification and the benefits derived are discussed. Finally, the article presents and comments key statistics for the most common accidents in Portuguese SMEs.
