520    To achieve sustainable progress in workplace and societal 
       functioning and development, it is essential to align 
       perspectives for the management of health, safety and well
       -being. Employers are responsible for providing every 
       individual with a working environment that is safe and 
       does not harm their physical or mental health. However, 
       the current state of the art indicates that approaches 
       used to promote health, safety and well-being have not had
       the anticipated results. At the level of the enterprise it
       is widely understood and accepted by all stakeholders that
       employers share the responsibility of promoting and 
       managing the health of their workers. Evidence indicates 
       that most employers put in place procedures and measures 
       to manage workers' health and create healthy workplaces to
       meet legal requirements, as a response to requests by 
       employees, as a need to improve company image/reputation, 
       and to improve productivity. This highlights that in 
       addition to legal requirements, the key drivers for 
       companies also include the ethical and business case. 
       While much has been written about role of legislation and 
       the business case for promoting health, safety and well-
       being, not much is known about the 'ethical case' for 
       promoting employment and working conditions. In this 
       context, this book examines the potential of the link 
       between responsible and sustainable workplace practices, 
       human rights and worker health, safety and well-being and 
       explores how complementary approaches can be used to 
       promote employment and working conditions and 
       sustainability at the organizational level. It offers a 
       framework for aligning different approaches and 
       perspectives to the promotion of workers' health, safety 
       and well-being and provides recommendations for 
       introducing such an approach at the enterprise level.
