According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), organizations cannot be sustainable without protecting the safety, health, and welfare of their workers.

With that in mind, OSHA has released a new white paper: "Sustainability in the Workplace: A New Approach for Advancing Worker Safety and Health."

This paper highlights the importance of including worker safety and health in the growing movement toward sustainability and corporate responsibility. Sustainability provides a platform for reimagining and identifying innovative approaches for protecting workers by:

• Creating new partnerships to advance integrated OSH and sustainability activities;
• Enhancing interdisciplinary training and education for workers, the OSH community, and business professionals;
• Measuring the impact of safety and health performance on business outcomes;
• Recognizing employers that successfully integrate OSH into sustainability efforts; and
• Improving access to data on safety and health for sustainability reporting.
