Prevent Sweden, formerly the Joint Industrial Safety Council, Arbetarskyddsnämnden) works to prevent accidents and ill-health in Sweden's enterprises and improve the work environment through the provision of information and training.

Prevent is a non-profit organisation and acts on behalf of Sweden´s labour market principals: The Confederation of Swedish Enterprise (Svenskt Näringsliv), The Swedish Trade Union Confederation (Landsorganisationen, LO), and The Federation of Salaried Employees in Industry and Services (Privattjänstemannakartellen, PTK).

Through the close collaboration and co-operation between the social partners, Prevent is able to deliver tailored and effective solutions with the support both of the employer and workers in enterprises and organisations.

An example of their promotional work was "Sweden's best work teams", in which a national competition looked at the positive effects of work organisation and teamwork was held in 2013-14.
