E-fact 50 - Cost-benefit-analysis of economic incentives at national level

Keywords:Good OSH is good for business, Accident prevention

Two examples that investigate the costs and benefits of incentive schemes are presented. The first example is the financial incentive system of the Fleischerei -Berufsgenossenschaft (institution for statutory accident insurance and prevention in the meat-processing industry) in Germany (Krüger H., 2008). The second example looks into an incentivising scheme for return to work initiatives in the UK (Nera, 2006).
