Riskbased OHS Enforcement

Risk-based OHS Enforcement

30th – 31st of October 2019
National Institute of Occupational Health STAMI, Oslo, Norway

About this course

The rates of occupational injuries and work-related diseases are still unacceptably high worldwide. The economic burden of preventable occupational injury and disease has recently been estimated to represent as much as 3% of gross domestic product in developed economies. Both the International Labor Organization and the World Health Organization view occupational health and safety legislation and regulatory enforcement as essential in worker health protection. Nevertheless, the scientific evidence regarding the effectiveness of regulatory enforcement is debated. Moreover, the effectiveness of the various enforcement tools is uncertain, i.e. is consultative activities as effective as inspections with penalties, and is a targeted inspection in a high-risk workplace more effective than a general inspection of a randomly chosen workplace?
