Title: International Experience
Type: Text Slide
Canada, Australia and all members of the European Union operate programs that either require employers to adopt injury and illness prevention programs, or provide incentives or recognition to those who do so. For example, under the 1989 EU Framework Directive, EU member countries must have national legislation in place requiring employers to maintain risk identification and prevention programs that are very similar to OSHA's injury and illness prevention program concept.
U.S. companies operating internationally are familiar with these requirements and have already put in place their own programs to meet these requirements.
