Continued improvements in occupational health and safety (OHS) can only be ensured if decisions about interventions are based on the best available evidence. To ensure this is the case, scientific evidence should meet the needs of decision-makers. In this plenary, Hanneke van Dongen shares the results of a qualitative study that explores the OHS decision-making process and information needs of decision-makers in the context of bridging the gap between the economic evaluation literature and daily practice in workplace health and safety.
