Hygiene in the Workplace

The importance of making the workplace healthy and safe is everyone’s responsibility – from the top management to mid-management and employees of all stations. The importance of providing employees with a safe workspace to execute their duties can’t be stressed enough, which is why the International Organization for Standardisation or ISO created OHSAS 18001, better known as the Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, in order to boost safety and hygiene in the workplace.

Employees spend so much of their time at work, and no workplace is never entirely free from potential risk. However, as a responsible business owner and employer, you are tasked with minimising the risks that your employees face as best as possible. Most industrial sites are loaded with chemicals and outfitted with machinery and tools, which workers are exposed to day in and day out.

There is an increasing demand for South African employers to manage the risks associated with occupational health and safety while improving performance and quality of existing health and safety management systems. For these reasons, every employer in South Africa should endeavour to plan, develop and implement management systems that are in line with ISO standards. Boost hygiene in the workplace and provide your employees with a safe place to execute the duties required of them.
