OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY

COURSE OVERVIEW

Occupational Health & Safety is an issue that impacts all organisations and companies cannot afford to adopt a reactive approach when dealing with it.

A proactive approach is the only way to prevent problems before they arise. Motives for compliance with OHS vary from company to company and include concern to prevent litigation, concern for workers, concern for the productivity impact of safety problems as well as many more.

What is unquestioned is the importance of Occupational Health & Safety to any organisation. To assist organisations to understand all the complexities and legal requirements of OHS, AstroTech is offering a training program on Occupational Health & Safety for Industry & Commerce
