This study focuses on occupational safety and health (OSH) perceptions and behaviours of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), including micro organisations. It builds on earlier research into the management of OSH in networked systems of production or service delivery.

The objectives in this study, undertaken by the University of Loughborough, were to:

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

This research can support your continuing professional development (CPD).
