Abstract: The essential resource of an organization is represented by the human resources (HR). Organizations are mandated to ensure the well-being and satisfaction of human resources in the workplace and the main way to do it is by implementing a safety culture where occupational health and safety (OHS)is continuous improved. Globally, there are a wide range of methods for occupational risk assessment. The first part of the paper presents a comparison between the main methods used internationally for the risk assessment. Based on this analysis, in the second part, there will be presented a propose methodology that will be then tested and validated in the case of a transport company headquartered. The risk assessment process will demonstrate the validity of the proposed methodology and also, the OHS situation in the analysed company, together with some improvement measures that have to be implemented. The main findings of the risk assessment will suggest aspects of risk mitigation, together with their influence or impact on employees’ well-being and satisfaction in the workplace. General conclusions will be presented in the final part of the paper.
