Ensure the Effectiveness of the Occupational Health and Safety Systems in Your Organization
Many organisations will recruit a Safety & Health Officer to oversee the company's obligations and procedures regarding the safety of its employees.
Safety and health is a top priority for many businesses. The law dictates that they should provide every employee with a safe working environment, and if they are found to be negligent, they stand to suffer considerable damage to their reputation and finances. Many companies therefore employ a safety and health officer to oversee requirements and carry out important tasks
Appointing a safety and health officer is important for businesses in two ways. First, it gives them peace of mind in knowing their safety and health requirements are being met; that is, employees are being trained in how to avoid risks, and the workplace is a safe environment. Additionally, it allows higher management to focus on other business targets, such as maximizing profits, reducing costs and heightening the productivity of their workforce. A safety and health officer provides employees and employers with a single point of contact to whom they can go if they have a query or concern regarding the safety of the workplace. The safety and health officer shall provide the technical and professional support required to facilitate compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act, disseminate information and direction for compliance regarding changes to the OHSA and new or revised regulations, facilitate occupational health and safety training, arrange for environmental testing of suspected contaminants as prescribed under the OHSA, and participate in the investigation of unsafe conditions, critical injuries, and the resolution of bilateral and unilateral work stoppages.
