It is, therefore, surprising that it took decades of indifference for organisations across the globe to realise that safe and healthy work environments are just about the first need of every individual who leaves home for work.
Occupational health deals with the promotion and maintenance of physical and mental health of workers, and their protection from disease and health-related risks. Safety, on the other hand, is often defined as freedom from unacceptable risk or harm. The subject of occupational health and safety, therefore, focuses on identification of health, as well as safety-related hazards, assessment of risks, and application of controls to eliminate, or minimise, the risks.
Driven by moral, legal and economic considerations, health and safety at work has come to play a vital role for individuals, as well as employers. It is both a moral and a legal obligation on the part of the management of a company to provide suitable conditions for work, and to exercise due diligence to prevent injury or ill health of all persons at work.
Standards often carry a formality about them, with each word bearing a specific meaning and context. This pocket guide is, therefore, an attempt to demystify the OHSAS standard, by presenting its contents and implementation methodology in a simple, user-friendly and easily understandable manner.
The guide follows a hands-on and step-by-step approach. It explains the purpose and the requirements of each clause, and goes on to describe how these requirements may be fulfilled by an organisation.
It includes numerous examples, suggestions, sample formats and sample procedures, to facilitate understanding and implementation, even by those individuals who may not have a previous background to this subject. Naeem has presented a number of papers in national conferences on management system standards, and has provided consultancy, training and auditing support to over organisations.
