OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH
Every business has safety risks and presents various kinds of safety hazards to its employees. Occupational safety deals with all aspects of physical, mental and social health and safety in a workplace. It is the umbrella for a company’s efforts to prevent injuries and hazards in all work environments.
EMERGENCY AND MEDICAL CARE
The provision of timely treatment during life-threatening emergencies in the emergency medical service (EMS) and hospital set-up is our priority for the health systems in Africa. Good training plays a very important role in medical care for contributing to health improvements within societies.
The importance of first aid is hard to overestimate. The greatest benefit of first aid is that it allows those trained with the potentially life-saving ability to assist an injured or ill person during a variety of emergency situations till the ambulance arrives. A well-trained OSH-Med International First Aider can save a life.
INDUSTRIAL FIRE FIGHTING
By establishing a fire prevention and preparedness programme with OSH-Med International legal compliance training, potential fires, injuries to employees and visitors, costly damages, and potential fines to business and household can be avoided.
Occupational safety deals with all aspects of physical, mental and social health and safety in a workplace. OSH-Med International comes to to the workplace and inspects the company according to the standards implemented. Workplace inspections help prevent incidents, injuries and illnesses. OSH-Med can help plan, conduct, report and monitor inspections. Regular workplace inspections are an important part of the overall OSH programme and management system.
An OSH policy is simply a method of stating how employees, contractors and visitors are expected to behave when they are on company property or performing company-related activities. Employers and contractors are required by law to provide a safe system of work. OSH-Med International is available towrite the OSH policy to suit company needs.
OSH assistance is designed to help employers, employees, health and safety committees to develop workplace health and safety programmes and to prepare plans of action to prevent accidents or occupational diseases. Investigations are conducted to meet and achieve good health and safety.
EVACUATION EXERCISE AND PLAN
A well-rehearsed and practised evacuation plan and drill can save lives. An evacuation plan lays out how to exit a building safely during an emergency. OSH-Med International can create evacuation plans. The purpose of an evacuation exercise is to identify any deficiencies and weaknesses in current procedures, test the knowledge and skills of the OSH Committee and ensure building occupants are familiar with evacuation procedures. Our practical evacuation drill is designed to test and validate emergency procedures
Part of managing the health & safety of any business involves controlling workplace risks. This is known as risk assessment and is required by law to carry out.
