Abstract:

This study builds on the earlier research and focuses on OSH perceptions and behaviours of SMEs, including micro organisations.

The objectives in this study were to:

  • investigate the perceptions of OSH in SMEs and micros in the UK
  • determine the sources of OSH knowledge in SMEs and micros
  • identify the enablers and barriers to accessing and applying OSH knowledge in SMEs and micros
  • examine how OSH knowledge is applied in practice in SMEs and micros
  • compare OSH knowledge and practices in SMEs and micros with those in larger organisations

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