Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) care is not requisitely holistic if it is not sustainable. Hence SOSH is suggested as a novel approach to the management of individuals, with a particular emphasis on the long-term aspects of occupational safety and health, as well as the principles of regeneration and renewal. SOSH improves a company's ability to recruit and keep high-quality employees: companies create attractive and unique employer brands through the incorporation of SOSH practises into their employee value proposition, mission, and vision. SOSH emphasizes the humane treatment of individuals, emphasising their health, safety, and overall well-being. SOSH facilitates the development of a company in a sustainable and sustained manner. Furthermore, it also encompasses other significant aspects, such as the safety, health, and well-being of employees, employability, justice, employee development, and employee participation, among others. Sustainability, social responsibility, dialectical systems theory, and its law of requisite holism all contribute to the creation of SOSH, which is a new knowledge-cum-values management approach to OSH. No similar concept is offered in the existing literature.
