Understanding the Economic Benefit Associated with Research and Services at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
An Approach and Three Case Studies The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) asked the RAND Corporation to develop an approach, reported here, for estimating the economic benefit of NIOSH research, using three case studies. The cases provide concrete illustrations of the ways in which NIOSH research could affect worker health and safety practices and outcomes, as well as some initial estimates of the economic benefit associated with those impacts. The authors selected the case studies to illustrate variation in types of NIOSH research and in intended users. The first case...
Prévenir les risques professionnels: Un enjeu économique pour l'entreprise
L'évaluation économique de la prévention des risques professionnels fait l'objet d'une littérature abondante. Il existe néanmoins presque autant de méthodologies et de résultats différents que d'études, ce qui rend le sujet très complexe et difficilement généralisable. Celui-ci suscite pourtant un intérêt grandissant, aussi bien en France qu'en Europe, où de nombreux organismes cherchent à approfondir les recherches et les approches existantes. L'ensemble des études...
Les avantages de l’investissement en matière de SST
Les 17 et 18 septembre 2014, la conférence «Investing in OSH – how benefits beat the costs» (investir dans la SST - des avantages supérieurs aux coûts) a été organisée par les points focaux des pays du Benelux en étroite collaboration avec le ministère néerlandais des affaires sociales et de l’emploi, l’EU-OSHA et la TNO. L’après-midi du 17 septembre a été consacré aux investissements en matière de SST au niveau de l’entreprise. Plusieurs cas d’entreprises...
The bigger picture. Assessing economic aspects of chemicals substitution
Assessing the economic aspects of substitution is a complex task. Even in cases where substitution is a relatively straightforward process of replacing one chemical with another, basing an economic assessment on a comparison of the price per kilo is often irrelevant. Progressive companies, as featured in this report, know that one must include several other factors when assessing the true costs of hazardous chemicals and the benefits of replacing them. Assessing the socioeconomic aspects when regulating hazardous substances can be even more challenging. Nevertheless, such assessments need to be...
The Role of Accounting in Work Health and Safety Governance
Currently there is a lack of standardised and accepted indicators to measure the work health and safety performance of organisations and businesses at the organisational level. Work health and safety information can and is being reported on a voluntary basis, however reporting is often selective and inconsistent. This hinders comparisons of work health and safety performance and due diligence reporting over time and across organisations. These papers are a series of research papers that will inform a broader three staged policy development project taking place over the next three years. The aim...
Workplace health and safety, business productivity and sustainability
Leadership and culture is one of the key Action Areas of the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022. There is strong evidence that performance is improved when organisations address work health and safety risks along with other important business risks. In 2014, Safe Work Australia commissioned the Centre for Workplace Leadership at Melbourne University to provide a summary of this evidence. The report suggests the evidence supports the general business case for investment in work health and safety – that those investments provide a positive return through reduced costs associated...
Evaluation of the effectiveness of occupational injury prevention programs at the company level
The objective was to evaluate the effectiveness of an occupational injury prevention program, known as the Preferential Action Plan (PAP), focused on companies with high incidence rates of occupational injuries. We studied 1189 companies in the industrial, construction and services sectors between 1999 and 2007 in the Valencia region (Spain). Our sample included 507,262 workers, among whom 44,250 non-fatal occupational injuries with at least a workday lost were registered. Companies included in a PAP program were divided into three intervention groups, according to the year that each company entered...

Linking HSE activities to health and safety outcomes
A feasibility study This research investigates the feasibility and challenges of developing quantitative evidence of links between ongoing activities and reductions in death, injury and causes of ill health caused by work. The study focuses on the activities of HSE as a whole and their link with final health and safety (H&S) outcomes. The approach: draws on the theories of change and associated logic models linking H&S regulation and final H&S outcomes to guide the literature search and review; reviews the approaches and methods adopted in the literature to specify and attempt to measure...
