Effectiveness of occupational health and safety management systems: a systematic review
We’re looking for managers and supervisors who have supported workers with chronic diseases to take part in this study
If you're a manager or supervisor with experience accommodating employees with chronic physical or mental health conditions, we’d like to talk to you about the challenges you have experienced in supporting these employees while also balancing privacy needs. Your participation would consist of a confidential phone interview of about 30 to 40 minutes.
If interested, please email email@example.com or call 1-855-884-1416.
Reasons for the study
Occupational health and safety management systems (OHSMSs) have developed considerably over the last 20 years, yet little is known about their effectiveness. The systematic review aimed to answer these questions: What is the relative effectiveness of mandatory and voluntary OHSMSs on employee health and safety and on associated economic outcomes? What facilitators and barriers are there to the adoption and the effectiveness of OHSMSs? What is the evidence on the cost-effectiveness of OHSMSs?
This systematic review, completed in 2005, concluded that there was insufficient evidence in the published, peer-reviewed literature on the effectiveness of occupational health and safety management systems to make recommendations either for or against them.
