Occupational Health & Safety (OHS)

In South Africa, the enjoyment of health and safety in any work environment is considered a basic human right and is regulated through the Occupational Health & Safety Act 85 of 1993. Because workplace injuries can destroy one’s quality of life, social activities, job performance and career prospects, it is therefore important that employees carry out their responsibilities in a safe and secure environment, free from hazards, regardless of the nature of work. Some employers battle with assuming the responsibility of ensuring the safety and welfare of its employees in the workplace. This is in spite of the fact that workplace injuries are not just costly but also have a potential of damaging company’s image. For small businesses, the cost of one injury on duty can be a financial disaster as this cost has been as high as two to three hundred percent of a company gross income.

We help companies develop and adopt a successful health and safety programs which in collaboration with strong management commitment and worker participation leads to the creation and sustainability of a safe workplace environment. We service companies of all sizes across all sectors with a special emphasis on existing buildings, construction sites, mining operations, manufacturing and commercial industries.
