    Top management’s strategic commitment to occupational health and safety (OHS) is crucial, but the middle and frontline managers play an important role in OHS management at the tactical and operational levels. The managers’ commitment can be supported by defining their OHS responsibilities and tasks. However, practical examples of their tasks are not widely discussed. This qualitative study aims to identify the OHS management tasks at different organizational levels based on empirical findings from Finnish industrial organizations. Top management’s OHS tasks focus on value judgements, goal setting, providing support, and visibly demonstrating their commitment to OHS. Middle managers develop uniform OHS procedures across the organization, and provide guidance to the frontline managers. Frontline managers monitor the daily work and identify the safety development needs for decision making. The emerged OHS tasks mostly involved technical issues, while human factor aspects were less emphasized, although they have been actively studied for some time.
