The Integration of Occupational Health and Safety into the Development of Eco - Industrial Parks
MetadataShow full item record
Large industrial estate has a significant impact on communities and people?s health. Eco-Industrial Park (EIP) is one of the strategies to implement the concept of industrial ecology by inter-company collaboration. The whole concept is that EIP development combines business success, environmental excellence, and community relationships to create economic opportunities and promote environmental sustainability. Various basic eco-criteria are fundamental to the development of an EIP such as energy efficiency, waste management, land use, and material / chemical flow, etc. Eco-industrial development is not limited to these types of activities which focus on a group of companies implementing environmental technologies. In addition, EIP considers a combination of the other criteria used such as cultural, social, health and safety for its development. Ordinarily, occupational health and safety (OHS) has not achieved a high profile in the sustainable development. Many studies have identified the place of OHS on sustainable development as a small part in an attempt to make arguments regarding OHS in a definite specific agenda. This paper aims to review the status of OHS and its role in the development of EIPs.
