Occupational Health And Safety

Occupational safety and health (OSH) also commonly referred to as occupational health and safety (OHS) or workplace health and safety (WHS) is an area concerned with the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment.

 

The goals of occupational safety and health programs include to foster a safe and healthy work environment.[1] OSH may also protect co-workers, family members, employers, customers, and many others who might be affected by the workplace environment.

 

In the South Africa the term occupational health and safety is referred to as

occupational health and occupational and non-occupational safety and includes

safety for activities outside of work.

 

Occupational safety and health can be important for moral, legal, and financial

reasons. In common-law jurisdictions, employers have a common law duty

(reflecting an underlying moral obligation) to take reasonable care for the safety

of their employees,

 

Statute law may build upon this to impose additional general duties, introduce specific

duties and create government bodies with powers to regulate workplace safety issues:

details of this will vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. . Good OSH practices can also reduce

employee injury and illness related costs, including medical care, sick leave and disability benefit costs.

Fire Fighting Training

 

When faced with extraordinary situations, anything can happen. With proper training and education, the ability to make the right decisions in these extraordinary situations is essential.

 

Legislation requires that 1 in 50 people per company, or two per building, should be trained in basic firefighting.

 

The best method of stopping a fire is to prevent it. The actions taken to control a fire during the first few minutes will determine whether it can be contained or not.

 

Work Place Safety

 

Safe work environment boosts employee morale, which, in turn, increases productivity, efficiency and profit margins.

 

When people feel like they have a good, safe work environment, they feel like they can make a difference.
