Occupational Health Services (OHS)

The main objective of Occupational Health Services is to protect and promote Worker safety, health, and well being. An integral part of OHS is aimed at improving working conditions and optimizing the work environment for a safe and happy labour force.

Occupational Health Care Workers interact with Management, Operational staff and Workers alike to prevent accidents, injuries, and diseases thereby improving the work environment.

Legislation (specifically in terms of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Act 85 of 1993) requires that the employer must as far as “reasonably practicable”, maintain a safe working environment without risks to health.

In addition, the Bill of Rights Section 24 states that every person has a right to an environment that is not detrimental to his/her health or well-being.
