  • Description:
    Objectives:

    The specific objectives of the 2017 Understanding Small Enterprises Conference were to: 1) identify successful strategies for overcoming occupational safety and health barriers in small and medium-sized enterprises; 2) disseminate best practices to research and business communities; 3) build collaborations between different stakeholders including researchers, insurers, small enterprises, government agencies; and 4) better inform occupational safety and health research relevant to small and medium-sized enterprises.

    Methods:

    A two and a half day international conference was organized, building upon three previously successful iterations. This conference brought together researchers, practitioners, and other stakeholders from 16 countries to share best-practices and emerging strategies for improving occupational safety and health in small and medium-sized enterprises.

    Findings:

    Cross-cutting themes that emerged at the conference centered around: 1) stakeholder and intermediary involvement; 2) what occupational health and safety looks like across different industries; 3) intervention programs (tools and resources); 4) precarious and vulnerable work and the informal sector; and 5) Total Worker Health® in small and medium-sized enterprises.

    Conclusion:

    A number of innovative initiatives were shared at the conference. Researchers must build collaborations involving a variety of stakeholder groups to ensure that occupational safety and health solutions are successful in small and medium-sized enterprises. Future occupational safety and health research should continue to build upon the successful work of the 2017 Understanding Small Enterprises Conference.
