MORE ABOUT THE OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY


The Occupational Health and Safety Act aims to provide for the health and safety of persons at work and for the health and safety of persons in connection with the activities of persons at work and to establish an advisory council for occupational health and safety.” (Department of Labour,2016,http://www.labour.gov.za/) Employees need to be informed and trained about the OHS regulations and what is expected of them in the work place. No employee just knows the OHS requirements since the day they start working. Plenty employees have never even been trained or informed and training is normally only done once there has been an incident at the workplace. Having trained employees will ensure that the business will operate smooth and workplace related injuries and incidents will be minimized if not avoided. It’s important that employees understand how to report to superiors should there be any activities or situations that could lead to workplace related injuries. Often employees don’t report to their superiors and they feel that they might be targeted and victimized should they point out a poor workplace environment.
