diversity management


active and conscious managerial process of accepting and using individuals’ differences and similarities as a positive factor in an organisation's capital, which creates added value to the company

Context: Info

Diversity and diversity management in the workplace are important issues in occupational safety and health today. However, diversity has seldom been studied from the perspective of risk assessment. Practical risk assessment tools that take into account the specific risks faced, for instance by people with disabilities, migrant workers, older workers, women and temporary workers, are still rare.
