Implementing your Health and Safety Programme
A Health and Safety Programme in the workplace is a challenge that requires understanding of all relevant legislation
Overview of Implementing a Health and Safety Programme
Ensuring Health and Safety in the workplace is a never-ending challenge that requires thorough understanding of all relevant legislation and the involvement of specialists. Our Health and Safety Programme Implementation ensures that fundamental Health and Safety procedures and strategies are put in place to uphold your OHS Compliance as per the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993.
All employers are expected to have an OHS Programme
The type of programme depends on the size of the workforce and the nature and extent of the risks and hazards in the workplace. Every workplace is different and the OHS Programme should be designed to address the specific needs of the individual workplace. Depending on the workplace, there may be a number of health and safety programmes in addition to the formal OHS Programme. These may include an emergency plan, a noise control, a confined space entry programme and a respirator programme.
Most programmes should be reviewed annually to ensure that they are effective and to consider changes in the workplace and work activities.
