  • Encouraging the development of sound research by business and economic scholars to investigate the economic and ethical dimensions of workplace safety and health.
     
  • Encouraging the advancement of workplace safety and health as a topic for education in business schools' curricula.
     
  • Exploring opportunities for educating the current executive workforce through executive education courses designed to raise awareness of the business value and competitive advantage associated with excellence in safety and health.
OSHA and CBPP will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:
  • Participating in working group meetings that explore workplace safety and health and other policy issues and create networks of mutual interest.
     
  • Sharing information to be appropriately disseminated on OSHA's and CBPP' respective Web pages.
     
  • Speaking, exhibiting, or appearing at conferences, local meetings, or other events.
