Book Description :

Occupational safety and health standards (OSHS) are designed to help protect about 130 million public and private sector workers from hazards at more than 8 million U.S. worksites. Questions exist concerning how long it takes OSHA to issue its standards. This report examines: (1) the time OSHA takes to develop and issue OSHS and the key factors that affect these time frames; (2) alternatives to the typical standard-setting process available for OSHA to address urgent hazards; (3) whether other regulatory agencies' rulemaking offers insight into OSHA's challenges with setting standards; and (4) ideas from occupational safety and health experts and agency officials for improving OSHA's process. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.

Book Description :

This eye-opening book shows how the rights of workers to safe and healthful workplaces are under greater attack today than at any time since the passage of the landmark Occupational Safety and Health Act in 1970. This collection is organized around three thematic issues that pose significant challenges to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's ability to protect workers' safety and health. First, the economy has shifted from an industrial base to a white collar/service base, which includes more women workers than ever before - yet many of the safety and health problems that affect women are not being adequately addressed. Second, free market ideology and globalization have served to undermine worker safety and health laws. And finally, the effects of 9/11 have exacerbated the trend toward weakening workers' rights and safety standards in the name of national security.

Book Description :

The papers contained in this booklet were presented at the transnational conference “Employment/Working Conditions, Occupational Safety and Health of Posted Workers” in Ljubljana, Slovenia (15 February 2017). The conference brought together experts (researchers and practitioners) from several European countries to discuss the existing and new challenges related to OSH (occupational safety and health), labour, and working conditions of posted workers. The conference served as the launch event of the POOSH project, financed by the European Comission (Programme EaSI PROGRESS) and led by Dr. Kristina Toplak from the Slovenian Migration Institute at ZRC SAZU. The booklet is covering the topic of the OSH of posted workers from several angles. The first part is framed around contributions given by researchers working in the field of labor mobility, with the focus on the occupational safety and health of posted workers. The second part contains contributions from practitioners working in NGOs, trade unions or Ministries of Labour who presented their work as well as discussed national and transnational legislations related to the OSH of posted workers. / V knjižici so predstavljeni prispevki z mednarodne konference »Zaposlitveni/delovni pogoji ter varnost in zdravje pri delu napotenih delavcev«, ki se je odvijala 15. februarja v Ljubljani. Na konferenci so sodelovali raziskovalci in strokovnjaki iz več evropskih držav, ki so razpravljali o obstoječih in novih izzivih povezanih z varnostjo in zdravjem pri delu ter o delovnih pogojih napotenih delavcev. Konferenca je del POOSH projekta, ki ga vodi Dr. Kristina Toplak iz ISIM ZRC SAZU, financira pa ga Evropska komisija (Program EaSI PROGRESS). V knjižici je tematika napotenih delavcev osvetljena z več zornih kotov. Prvi del temelji na prispevkih raziskovalcev, ki se ukvarjajo z mobilnostjo in delovnimi migracijami, s poudarkom na tematiki varnosti in zdravja pri delu napotenih delavcev. Drugi del vsebuje prispevke strokovnjakov, predvsem predstavnikov nevladnih organizacijah, sindikatov ali ministerstev, ki so v prispevkih predstavili svoje delo in razpravljali o nacionalnih in nadnacionalnih zakonodajah, ki se nanašajo na napotene delavce ter na področje varnosti in zdravja pri delu.

Book Description :

To achieve sustainable progress in workplace and societal functioning and development, it is essential to align perspectives for the management of health, safety and well-being. Employers are responsible for providing every individual with a working environment that is safe and does not harm their physical or mental health. However, the current state of the art indicates that approaches used to promote health, safety and well-being have not had the anticipated results. At the level of the enterprise it is widely understood and accepted by all stakeholders that employers share the responsibility of promoting and managing the health of their workers. Evidence indicates that most employers put in place procedures and measures to manage workers’ health and create healthy workplaces to meet legal requirements, as a response to requests by employees, as a need to improve company image/reputation, and to improve productivity. This highlights that in addition to legal requirements, the key drivers for companies also include the ethical and business case. While much has been written about role of legislation and the business case for promoting health, safety and well-being, not much is known about the ‘ethical case’ for promoting employment and working conditions. In this context, this book examines the potential of the link between responsible and sustainable workplace practices, human rights and worker health, safety and well-being and explores how complementary approaches can be used to promote employment and working conditions and sustainability at the organizational level. It offers a framework for aligning different approaches and perspectives to the promotion of workers’ health, safety and well-being and provides recommendations for introducing such an approach at the enterprise level.
