ECOSH The Economic Dimension of Occupational Safety and Health

Occupational health and safety (OSH) of workers is at the heart of the production process. The economic dimension is therefore an important but not clearly defined aspect. The project, in which NIOM was one of the partners, aimed at clarifying the economic dimension of OSHA. ECOSH lasted three years (2008 – 2010) and its objective was synthesis of achievements in the field of health economics and safety in the workplace in order to improve effectiveness of implemented solutions and quality of research on economic aspects of activities for health and safety. Organisation and substantive preparation of international seminar: “ The influence of economic incentives on actions concerning health and safety at work” and dissemination of the results of the seminar were also the goals of the project.

As a result of the project a report ‘Accident insurance due to accidents at work and occupational diseases in Poland’ was presented. During the plenary session of EU-OSHA European Network Day on Risk Assessment  2009 on risk assessment and economic evaluation a presentation ‘ Economic dimensions of Risk Assessment’ was delivered. Furthermore, an article for publication in SJWEH (included in the publishing plan of the magazine) was prepared.

It is generally assumed that a healthy workforce working in safe workplaces is more productive and uses less social and care expenses. In an attempt to ensure more concerted actions on the economic dimension of OSH, the Finish Institute of Occupational Health, together with 3 international Partners (NIOM, PREVENT, VU University Amsterdam, inc. the Medical School) has put forward the proposal for the ECOSH project.

The particular aim of the project was to bring together the researchers, employers, policymakers, unions and other stakeholders within occupational health. The exchange of knowledge and experience between the parties was based on a series of thematic workshops, namely:

Workshop no. 1: The impact of OSH and OSH interventions of company performance.
Workshop no. 2: Economic evaluation of OSH interventions.
Workshop no. 3:  Economic incentives for the uptake of OSH measures.

Overall, the project has resulted in:

−  a better understanding of the relationship between economics and OSH,
−  the construction of improved tools for economic evaluation of OSH interventions,
−  enlargement of contemporary evidence base within occupational health.
