Aims to map the changing OSH policy and practice landscape, identifying how to achieve the right balance between different types of initiatives.

The project had the following research objectives:

  • to investigate different sources of authority and key stakeholders in the changing OSH landscape
  • to map different types of initiatives promoted by these key stakeholders, their implementation in practice and their impact
  • to compare with similar changes to the OSH landscape in other countries
  • to investigate how much freedom stakeholders have to devise locally-relevant OSH strategies
  • to explore how potential external constraints are generated and managed by stakeholders in local OSH systems and how they are changing with the industrial structure
  • to investigate how the changing OSH landscape affects OSH standards and practice, especially for small and medium-sized enterprises.
  • to explore how OSH professionals cope with changing regulatory contexts
  • to provide recommendations on the role of IOSH and its members in a changing environment

The  project was devised as part of the IOSH research programme, “Health and Safety in a Changing World”.
