analysis included in the search include also looking at company productivity. The focus of this analysis
includes samples, design, theoretical framework, implementation OHS, validity and results.Results show,in
15 cases, cross-sectional research design looked at pre-after comparisons in the absence of control groups.
The positive return on investment from the implementation of OHS is shown in 13 studies. Two other studies
concluded that their chosen implementation of OHSwas not cost-effective. The main benefit is to reduce sick
