Health and safety at work has become one of the most substantial and important sectors in the EU social policy over the last years. The European Community Strategy is based on setting up and reinforcing a culture of risk prevention, on combining a variety of tools for the implementation of the EU policies: legislation, social dialogue, technical progress and best practices as well as building partnerships among all the actors on the stage of health and safety at work. In Romania, the implementation of health and safety management systems is performed by: a systematic approach to problems, training and awareness, effective and efficient tools for managing a company’s specific issues as well as involvement at all its organizational levels. The article deals with the implementation of the management systems for health and safety at work, which complements the enterprises’ existing organizational system and promotes enforcement of the legislation regarding health and safety at work. Creating a healthier and safer working environment is a goal that exceeds the resources and expertise of a single institution or a single country.
