The Importance of Sound Health and Safety Management in a Modern Business
Health and safety management is an important factor that cannot be ignored. Effective health policies and relative training not only decrease the losses suffered by employee sick days but also boost productivity and morale in the business. When employees take sick leave, temporary workers need to be brought in and trained. This incurs additional expense and the workflow suffers since the temp workers will take time to find their equilibrium.
Health and safety management deals with the management of the workers’ safety in the workplace. A healthy and safe workplace is the end goal of any occupational safety policy framework. Most developing and developed countries have laws that regulate health and safety management policies in the workplace. Companies are charged with ensuring compliance with all the relevant occupational health and safety regulations in South Africa.
At IOH Solutions, we work with you to ensure compliance with all relevant health and safety legislation in South Africa. We know it can be challenging for our clients to stay up to date with current legislation, as it is always changing and evolving. We make it our business to stay up to date with the latest laws and regulations, and make sure that you stay on the right side of the law.
