Together with GFK Eurisko we investigated the approach to occupational health & safety adopted by companies in different sectors in Europe, North America, South America and Asia. The survey, that was conducted in October 2013, explored the way occupational H&S is managed, the main risk areas and the main initiatives implemented in different world areas and sectors by our customers.
