Online Course / 1 hour



Health and safety in the workplace is an issue that affects all businesses. Implementation of an occupational health and safety system has now been mandated by law in many countries. In order to comply with the legislation and devise a system to ensure a safe environment in the workplace, you should introduce a management system to help reduce the risk of accidents, litigation and downtime. An Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) provides a paradigm for managing OHS responsibilities efficiently and integrating it seamlessly into the overall business operations. This course is based on the recognized assessment specification OHSAS 18000. Taking this course can reduce risk, help you and your company stay in compliance with legal requirements, and improve overall performance.
