The quest by labour for 'something to be done' about working and living conditions is gathering momentum and the framework through which this is achieved is the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) regulation. The need for corporate social responsibility is premised on the idea that economic enterprise and sustainable development require protection of the welfare, health and safety of the workforce and the environment. One way of achieving this is through social regulation of the market, of which OHS regulation is a species. Any business or country wishing to maintain a competitive edge in the labour market needs to promote and improve its OHS practice. In this discussion I look at this issue in the context of Malawi and suggest a way forward which will balance social and economic policy and deliver value and social progress.
