Abstract

Well-being and safety are concepts which as close to each other have so far been studied separately. Well-being at work focuses on well-being of members of an organisation. A need has been perceived to define safety in a positive and proactive way in order to promote more comprehensive safety management. Approach to well-being is positive unlike to safety, which has traditionally been connected to accidents. We propose to define safety as a positive property of an organization: the capability to continuously produce economic, human and environmental well-being. This definition connects well-being, safety, and well-being at work
