OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY (OHS)

OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY (OHS)

A health and safety program is a definite plan of action designed to prevent accidents and occupational diseases. A health and safety program must include the elements required by the health and safety legislation as a minimum.

When making these decisions it is important to be aware that in many cases, there are statutory requirements for providing health and safety training.

Because organizations differ, a program developed for one organization cannot necessarily be expected to meet the needs of another. Every organization uses a variety of tools to achieve institutional goals, including business plans, strategic plans, and long-range development plans.

The goals of an organization’s OHSP are as follows: to identify hazards in the workplace and determine the risk associated with them, to design the facility and management program to reduce risks associated with the hazards, and most importantly, to communicate hazard identification, risk assessment, and appropriate safety measures to all employees.

An OHSP integrates the efforts of management, administration, employees, and health care professionals in an active, evolving program that promotes a culture of safety in the workplace.
The challenge of providing a safe work environment is best met with the development of an OHSP that provides a foundation for a culture of safety and makes worker safety a central mission for all employees of an institution.
