New resource helps advance worker safety and health through sustainability

Publication provides framework for metrics

Posted June 17, 2016

The Center for Safety and Health Sustainability announced it has released a Best Practice Guide for Occupational Health and Safety in Sustainability Reports. The publication outlines a framework that can be used to incorporate occupational health and safety metrics into sustainability reporting practices.

According to OSHA, over the last several years, businesses have made sustainability a key part of their growth strategy. While most of the focus has been on environmental issues, attention is now turning to other aspects of sustainability, including occupational safety and health. This shift presents new opportunities for OSHA professionals to advance the protection of workers.

The guide was developed through a collaborative process that included some of the world's largest occupational safety and health professional organizations and represents standards of performance which are already accepted, understood, and operationalized by those managing safety and health at work.
