Effectiveness and implementation of health and safety programs in small enterprises: A systematic review of quantitative and qualitative literature

Small businesses have unique challenges with occupational health and safety (OHS). Overall, workers in a small business have a higher risk of workplace injury than workers in large firms, yet both workers and owners may not have a sense of this increased risk. Small businesses are more likely to face financial instability than larger firms. Together, these situations create a challenge in understanding and managing the risk of workplace accidents.
This systematic review was conducted to provide an understanding of and guidance on how to implement OHS in small businesses, and to identify effective OHS programs.
