Supporting compliance with OSH regulations: ongoing research


Adhering to occupational safety and health (OSH) standards is fundamental to worker protection. A new web section outlines research being carried out by EU-OSHA (2021 – 2024) to analyse the factors affecting compliance and how it can be improved, particularly among micro and small enterprises.

The research aims to examine the different types of support available to companies and effective strategies and practices adopted by OSH regulators, with an overarching review and in-depth studies exploring how the state, market forces and supply chains (with a particular focus on the agri-food and construction sectors) influence compliance.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and its implications for OSH compliance are also considered.
