As a part of its research programme to improve compliance with occupational safety and health (OSH) regulations, EU-OSHA has explored the potential of supply chains  — the relationships between buyers and sellers — to promote OSH.

Expanding the research scope beyond traditional employment relationships, the potential of market-based practices to enhance working conditions has been examined. A thorough literature review focusing on Improving OSH through supply chains in agri-food and construction offers a comprehensive understanding of the subject. Additionally, two policy briefs assess the implementation, opportunities and challenges of these practices in the agri-food and construction sectors.

EU-OSHA’s research programme seeks to inspire and assist companies in complying with OSH regulations. An overarching report on the topic is available.
