Occupational Health Management

Worker health in South Africa has generally been excluded from legislation , although some issues on worker health have been include , e.g noise , effects of temperature , some ergonomic aspects , and available workspace.

This changed on January 1st 1994 when the Occupational Health And Safety Act 1993 (Act 85 of 1993) , placed greater emphasis on Occupational Health (Work Health).

It makes it Management's responsibility to identify any risks associated with their processes / operations , to take the necessary steps to safe guard their employees health and safety , and to inform the employees of any dangers associated with a particular task or work environment.

This new Act therefore requires Management to actively Manage Occupational Health And Safety. In order to carry out all these new responsibilities adequately , the Manager will either have to employ qualified staff , obtain advise from consultants or become an expert himself.

A requirement of the new legislation is that only Qualified persons and / or an Approved Inspection Authority be used in matters of Occupational Health.
