Occupational Safety can be defined as the health and wellbeing of people employed in a work environment.
To promote the safety of employees, the laws and regulations are enforced by the Department of Labour to prevent workplace illnesses, accidents, injuries, and fatalities.
Important questions to ask: Can all accidents be avoided?
What are the minimum prescribed regulations and are all regulations followed to minimise incidents?
- Are all staff trained to recognise risk and prevent incidents?
- Should an accident occur, is a plan in place for prompt intervention and quality support?
- Do you have a strategic recovery programme in place?
If you answered NO to any of the above questions, your organisation and / or employees may be at risk in the Occupational Health and Safety Department.
