The aim of this paper is to present a literature review on models and methods (tools) currently available for economic evaluations of OSH. The work methodology involved a search through international databases and science searchengines, as well as examining citations from other authors. This scrutiny allowed establishing the state of the art in this field. As a result, relevant features of current approaches are characterized here and some methodological limitations in this domain are briefly discussed; emphasis is put on the particular needs of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs).
