    Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingArticle in proceedingResearchpeer-review


    Occupational health and safety management (OHSM) in micro and small enterprises may look like an odd ex-pression. Most
    owner-managers do not think of OHSM as something to give priority. They are occupied with management of the core
    business which in many cases constitute a simple fight for survival. However, OHS is always managed in one way or the
    other, and the important point is to learn how the owner-manager focus on the core business can be integrated with
    improvement of the work environment. It is therefore crucial to understand the thinking of owner-managers and their
    social relations with the employees in order to develop support programmes for micro and small enterprises which
    successfully improves conditions for owner-managers as well as their employees.
