Occupational health and safety (OHS) is one of the most important problem of a company because each manager should consider the workers as the most valuable resource of the enterprise. This issue is all the more important as in the last decades, the types of OHS risks have changed due to technological, social and economic advances, and companies should use new approaches and instruments to control and manage these risks. The paper focuses on the application of OHS management system as an important instrument for managers to ensure healthy workplaces for all workers, addressing not only OHS management but also quality management, environmental management and social responsibility issues in an integrated context. The results are represented by practical instruments that any organization should use to assess its OHS performance. Also, the theoretical and practical aspects presented here could be easily integrated in the existing or new designed procedures of the company.
