Introduction

Management of OHS risks and operational risks in the same process is becoming an unavoidable necessity (Zwetsloot et al. 2007). Studies have shown that if OHS issues are addressed appropriately, improved efficiency and productivity can result throughout an entire organization (Bruseberg 2008, Morse et al. 2009, Vogt et al. 2010). Since quality, health, safety and operations management problems are all interrelated, many researchers (Dul and Neumann 2009, Caroly et al. 2010) and practitioners (Goodyear 2005) are interested in integrating all of these aspects into the design and planning stages of manufacturing systems and therefore recognize the difficulties inherent in attempting to integrate information in dispersed and complex systems (Le Coze 2005).
