The resilience engineering concept in enterprises with and without occupational safety and health management systems

In this study, I examine whether the resilience engineering concept is related to the implementation of occupational safety and health management systems (OSH MSs) and to safety levels in Polish enterprises of different sizes and activities. A relative risk category was applied to the surveyed enterprises to allow for comparability among enterprises representing different hazards resulting from different types of activities and employment levels. The results showed that there is no relationship between the presence of OSH MSs and either the safety level or the level of the resilience concept. However, statistically significant differences were observed between enterprises in the extremely high-risk category and enterprises in the other risk categories.
