The factors which cause workplace accidents and occupational illnesses are called hazards. The need for systematic management of OHS hazards and their attendant risks applies to all organisations and all activities and functions within an organisation.
The Health and Safety in Employment Act aims to promote the health and safety of everyone at work and of other people in or around places of work.
To achieve this, it requires people who are responsible for work and those who do the work to take steps to ensure their own health and safety and that of others.
