Abstract: The practice of occupational safety and health (OSH) management is a good indication of economical development in the urban areas to some extent. With the rapid social and economical development in China, OSH has become more concerned by the local government. Professionals in all disciplines are paying more attention to OSH. The legal system of OSH is becoming more a basis for the improvement of OSH management. Now, OSH is not only watched carefully by the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). In recent years, health and safety at work is taken as an important subject by employers and employees in enterprises of all scale. In addition to prescriptive regulations which might not be applicable to new subject disciplines, broad knowledge is required in safety engineering, industrial hygiene and medicine, ergonomics, and psychology. Through many years of development, the OSH regulatory system in China is expanding gradually, and implemented in the society as a fundamental requirement. The current situation of OSH in China is reviewed in the paper. This would give more insights into the present status of the supervisory organization, legal system and the major legislations concerned in Mainland China.
