The contributions to this Worklife 2000 workshop and special issue of the Safety Science Monitor touch upon several aspects crucial to safety management. The perspectives and concepts presented are from areas which include, but are not specifically dedicated to, occupational health and safety. Safety at work, however, represents the prime target area of the workshop and the discussion initiated here, and hopefully continuing through the year on this site, should be seen as an attempt to seek the potential of initiatives, approaches and applications in non-occupational areas to the management of safety at work.
These comments are not meant to be exhaustive to the theme of the workshop, but rather to provide some perspectives from the target area of work-related risks.
