Management of occupational health and safety in European workplaces — evidence from the Second European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER-2)


The report describes how management commitment to and worker representation in OSH management can significantly increase the likelihood of a company implementing good practice.

It also highlights the need to assist micro and small enterprises (MSEs) with OSH, in line with the EU Strategic Framework on Health and Safety at Work 2014-2020 and the European Pillar of Social Rights.

The tendency of organisations to focus more on the traditional ‘safety’ aspects of OSH than on health and psychosocial risks was also identified as an area that must be addressed, particularly among MSEs and in certain sectors.
