The documents examined in this research are 37 doctoral theses made in the field of occupational health and safety between 2004-2021 in accordance with the purpose of the research. The data collected through document analysis in the research were analyzed by content analysis method. According to the results of the research, the most theses were prepared in 2019, and the universities that prepared the most theses were Istanbul University and Gazi University. It has been seen that the study subjects of the theses are mainly health, labor economics and engineering.
