The present day state of OH&S practice is briefly profiled and forces thought to have contributed to its development are listed. Four emerging socioeconomic conditions are identified: (1) sustainable development, (II) 9/11 trickledown, (III) the safe and civil society movement and social and responsible business itself, and (IV) evolution in thinking about profit, free riding, and cognitive dissonance. It is argued that these forces are driving an enhanced role for OH&S within social and economic development. Opportunities for APOSHO are discussed.
