Sustainability in Occupational Health and Safety: A Conceptual Analysis


In the field of occupational health and safety (OHS), the sustainability of actions is important for both prevention and rehabilitation. It is useful to consider the sustainability of actions to prevent musculoskeletal disorders in order to monitor the effectiveness of actions taken and to maintain them over time. However, there is no clear and unanimous definition of the concept of sustainability in OHS.

The objective of this study is to analyze the concept of sustainability in OHS in order to better guide research and interventions in prevention and rehabilitation in occupational settings.
