    Abstract

    La reducción de la siniestralidad laboral y la mejora de la competitividad empresarial requiere la implantación de un sistema de gestión de la seguridad y salud laboral que promueva comportamientos seguros y la implicación personal de los trabajadores en actividades vinculadas con su bienestar en el trabajo. La literatura no ha llegado a un consenso acerca de las dimensiones que componen este sistema y son escasos los instrumentos proporcionados para valorar este tipo de gestión. En este trabajo se efectúa una revisión de la literatura más relevante en la materia, con el fin de desarrollar y validar una escala que permita la medición y evaluación de la gestión preventiva en las empresas españolas. Para ello se realizan análisis factoriales exploratorios y análisis factoriales confirmatorios, utilizando una muestra de 455 empresas. / Reducing the occupational accident rate and improving competitiveness requires that firms implement an occupational health and safety management system that promotes safe behaviour and workers’ personal involvement in activities linked with their well-being at work. The literature has not reached a consensus about the dimensions making up such a system, and few tools have been designed to evaluate this type of management. In this work we review the most relevant literature on the topic, in order to develop and validate a scale for measuring and evaluating preventive management in Spanish companies. For this purpose, we conduct exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses on a sample of 455 firms.
