OSH_cloudtagI´m sure I´m not the only one who gets sometimes into a mess when writing in English about occupational safety and health and refer to it with abbreviations. You know: H&S, OSH, OHS, OSHA, OSHAS, EHS, OSHAS 18001, HSE, OH&S, EH&S,… HAAAAALT!!.

This is a simple but necessary post just to arrange these “letters”. Starting with the simplest:

Finally, there are variations such as H&S (Health and Safety), OH&S (for Occupational Health and Safety) or EH&S (for Environment, health and Safety), that mean the same than the basic HS, OSH and EHS but with an elegant touch.
