As they are anticipative, proactive, and treating assessment as a quasi-continuous phase of risk management, the next step in keeping workers safe seems to be the proper implementation of the guidelines on risk assessments included in ISO 45001. They are indeed inspiring for organizations worldwide to consider risk management as really important, good for the business, and imperative for worker health and safety. What should the Romanian organizations know and do in this spirit? The main objective of this paper is to answer systematically and in a structured way the question of whether there is a set of principles, means to follow, recommendable approaches that, taking into account the general practice established at national level at this time of evolution, allow even to facilitate the transition from reactive to proactive management of occupational hazards, with all the advantages and - at the same time - challenges that this change implies? The main possible answers to this question are investigated, resulting in a set of conclusions with practical applicability, which can guide the process of streamlining the results of accidents at work and occupational diseases prevention work at the national level, within a coherent and unitary vision.
