In order to better protect the more than 217 million workers in the European Union (EU) from work-related accidents and diseases, in 2014 the European Commission adopted the Strategic Framework on Health and Safety at Work 2014-2020, which identifies key challenges and strategic objectives for health and safety at work. The Strategic Framework aims to ensure that the EU continues to play a leading role in the promotion of high standards for working conditions, to improve implementation of existing safety and health rules, in particular by enhancing the capacity of micro- and small enterprises to implement effective and efficient risk prevention strategies and to improve the prevention of work-related diseases by tackling new and emerging risks, without neglecting existing risks. This Framework proposes to address these challenges with a range of actions, including the improvement of statistical data collection to generate better evidence and to make more appropriate use of the data, as well as further improvements in monitoring tools. As part of a series of secondary analyses of data from the second European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER-2), the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) commissioned a study to combine data from the survey with data from two other major European surveys - the LFS 2013 ad hoc module on accidents at work and other work-related health problems, and the 6th European Working Conditions Survey - in one joint analysis. The aim was to provide answers to relevant questions in the area of occupational safety and health (OSH) risk management that could not be answered by analysing the individual datasets in isolation, such as 'When OSH risks are managed at the enterprise level, do employees perceive that their exposure to OSH risk is reduced or lower?' and 'What about their work-related health outcomes?'. To promote risk management, it is important to know which factors influence OSH risk management; for instance whether risk management is impacted by the level of exposure of employees to work-related risks, both general and specific, whether the incidence of health problems gives impetus to the decision to manage OSH risks, and whether drivers of and barriers to OSH risk management - such as management commitment, employee participation or a lack of resources - are also important factors for consideration. This knowledge may be relevant to policy-makers, employer and employee representatives, and OSH professionals, so that all of them can further encourage occupational risk management.

The authors address concepts central to workplace safety such as attitudes and their link with behavior. They discuss managing behavior in work environments including key functions and benefits of groups, factors influencing team effectiveness, and barriers to effectiveness such as groupthink.
