The aim of this study was to undertake a more detailed analysis of the data from the Second European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER-2) concerning the management of health and safety in European Union (EU) workplaces. It was commissioned by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) to build on the earlier findings of analyses of ESENER-1 and ESENER-2 with a view to:
1) identifying measures that might foster higher levels of commitment to occupational health and safety (OHS) among establishments;
2) identifying types of enterprises that are more likely to have low commitment and on which support should be focused;
3) helping policy-makers to make the best use of limited resources in the prevention of health and safety risks.
