"Personally I don't think you can fit Occupational Health & Safety (OSH)
in any one particular part of your plan. I do feel though that OSH can
become one of those aspects of life in business, where the goals of the
business and the individual can be well aligned. It makes good business
sense to avoid the losses associated with workplace accidents, and of
course the individual doesn't want to get hurt at work either."

I don't agree. I suggest that the organisational processes which promote
OSH are an essential componenet of those processes which promote effective
and efficient organisations as a whole. Show me an organisation with a
poor OSH record, and you have shown me one which isn't doing good
