The main purpose of an Occupational Health and Safety Management System is to provide a management tool to reduce the risk of occupational injuries, ill health and fatalities and to effectively manage workplace hazards, risks and dangers within the organization, avoiding unwanted and unnecessary loss.
Managing Occupational Health and Safety Systems does not have to be complicated, costly or time-consuming. In fact it is easier than you think. Certification to an International Occupational Health and Safety standard demonstrates that an organization has considered how they will identify, manage and control health and safety risks.
Every industry comes with its own risks which according to the laws implemented, the employers need to address and restrict. Implementing a health and safety management system demonstrates your organization cares about the well-being of its workers, which can help you attract more quality candidates.
