Course objectives

Economic aspects are essential when making decisions about the content and scope of OHS activities, at both workplace and national level. The intention of the OHS Economics course is to provide a theoretical background and practical skills to make economic calculations in OHS issues. The course will be held on a level that is also comprehensible for non-economists. Some other OHS issues will also be addressed, with the aim of increasing awareness of the role of calculations in internal OHS governance. The purpose of the course is: To present recent international research findings and cases related to the economic analysis of OHS activities, and to demonstrate the basic approaches to economic analysis. Participants are encouraged to bring their own data for analysis during the workshop.
