Why is it required?

Health and Safety in the workplace is a serious matter with significant legal penalties for those who do not implement and comply with the Act and Regulations. The Occupational Health and Safety Act, 85 of 1993, requires the employer to bring about and maintain, as far as reasonably practicable, a work environment that is safe and without risk to the health of the workers. The workers and the employer share a dual responsibility for health and safety in the workplace.

What is the benefit?
What are the benefits of following health and safety practices?

There are numerous benefits for following health and safety practices in the workplace, and benefits are based on employers demonstrating a ‘duty of care’ for their workers and anyone else who may be on their premises or acting on their behalf.
Benefit 1 – Protecting your workers
Following health and safety guidelines is primarily to protect employers and their workers from injury, illness or coming into any other form of harm in the workplace. One of the main benefits of following health and safety practices is, but not limited to, the prevention of common workplaces injuries such as back pain, falling from height, asthma, injuries from slips and trips and asbestos-related illness.

Benefit 2 – Reducing absences
Following health and safety guidelines and maintaining a safe work place will reduce the risk of work-related illnesses and injuries, and therefore reduce staff absences. Employers therefore also save money on the direct costs of absences, such as paying salaries.
Benefit 3 – Improving productivity
If your colleagues and employees are able to work in a safe environment, this will improve morale and overall productivity.
Benefit 4 – Saving money
By maintaining health and safety practices in the workplaces, and therefore reducing absences and improving productivity, you will be saving money by retaining staff. Money spent on absences and recruitment processes will decrease, and the business’ profits will increase.
Following health and safety guidelines and maintaining a safe work place will reduce the risk of work-related illnesses and injuries, and therefore reduce staff absences. Employers therefore also save money on the direct costs of absences, such as paying salaries.

Our Safety Division will help you keep your business up to date and ensure you are able to ensure employees follow correct procedures.
