The Relationship between Occupational Safety, Health, and Environment, and Sustainable Development: A Review and Critique

Zohreh Molamohamadi and Napsiah Ismail
Abstract— This paper discusses the significant commonalities of today’s two highly contentious concepts, occupational safety, health, and environment, and sustainable development. Although the major concern of both of these policies is human welfare and wellbeing, they look at it from different perspectives and try to reach this objective through different ways. Moreover, it is shown that they are interrelated and without pursuing one strategy, the other would not be developed. So, this paper, firstly, aims at defining and exploring these concepts to find their relevance. Secondly, the relationship between these strategies and their approaches are explained.

Index Terms— Occupational health and safety, environment, sustainable development.
