Abstract This article presents a summary of the International Social Security Association (ISSA) on the return of investments in occupational safety and health (OSH) (see ISN 112459). Spending on OSH (personal protective equipment, training, medical supervision) brings about twice the amount in benefits in the form of lower absenteeism and added value (motivation, enterprise image, product quality, innovation).
