Abstract

Aim how to realise the approaches that can sustainable prevention in occupational health and safety be achieved?

In today’s world, the concept of sustainability is attracting considerable attention as many governments have integrated it in their economic development strategies. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), sustainable development is defined as a strategy to ‘meet the needs of the present world population without causing adverse effect on health and on the environment, and without depleting or endangering the global resource base, hence without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs’. Sustainable development relies on several principles for framing its actions, many of which can clearly be applied to occupational health and safety
