We evaluated the relationship between different occupational health and safety (OHS) integration systems and the participation of social agents. Using the 2014 National Survey on Labor Risk Management in Companies (n=3.162), we compared levels of participation (passive, active and prospective) by type of OHS integration system (in-house, third-party or a combination of the two), estimating the odds ratio and the 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) using crude (OR) and adjusted (aOR) logistic regression. Results showed that inhouse and combined OHS resources were associated with a greater prevalence of active participation both in employee discussions(aOR = 1.78, 95% CI = 1.08-2.94 and aOR = 2.07, 95% CI = 1.21-3.53, respectively) and in OHS meetings (aOR = 2.09, 95% CI = 1.19-3.68 and aOR = 1.85, 95% C( = 1.03-3.22). Nevertheless, Spain is the second country in the European Union with the highest outsourcing index, which constitutes a barrier to the promotion of a preventive culture. KEY
