OHSMP

Every job carries certain risks, whether it’s the job of a firefighter, a nurse, an engineer, a photographer, or a computer programmer. Each job has its unique challenges that must be taken into account in order to prevent incidents, injuries, illnesses, and compromised wellbeing of all employees. Every organization, big or small, has to work on ensuring employee health and safety. This is the way to ensure the organization complies with relevant laws and regulations, but also to increase productivity and minimize threats not only to employees but to the business as well. Businesses must be able to tackle the threats and risks to their resources, employee safety, and organizational performance. These elements are intertwined as a sick, injured, or ill worker cannot contribute their best to the organization. To ensure long-term success, organizations need to develop, implement, and continually improve their health and safety management framework.
