Occupational safety and health (OSH), also commonly referred to as occupational health and safety (OHS), occupational health, or workplace health and safety (WHS), is a multidisciplinary field concerned with the safety, health, and welfare of people at work.
The goals of occupational safety and health programs include fostering a safe and healthy work environment. OSH may also protect co-workers, family members, employers, customers, and many others who might be affected by the workplace environment.
Each year, people die or are seriously injured as a result of fire in the workplace. Fire can cost businesses vast amounts of money, sometimes causing them to close permanently. It is vital for businesses to ensure that their premises meet fire safety regulations, while ensuring all employees and visitors know what action to take in the event of fire.
There is a requirement under the The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005) to provide staff fire safety training, and not doing so can lead to prosecution. The training needs to be provided on induction into the business, periodically following this or when there have been significant changes in the business. A record of the training need to be kept.
First aid is the provision of immediate care to a victim with an injury or illness, usually effected by a lay person, and performed within a limited skill range. First aid is normally performed until the injury or illness is satisfactorily dealt with (such as in the case of small cuts, minor bruises, and blisters) or until the next level of care, such as a paramedic or doctor, arrives. First aid may help the person to survive till the doctor comes and saves his/her life.
The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. These Regulations apply to all workplaces including those with less than five employees and to the self-employed.
Industrial safety is important as it safeguards human life, especially in high risk areas such as nuclear, aircraft, chemical, oil and gases, and mining industries, where a fatal mistake can be catastrophic. Industrial Safety reduces risks to people, and processes.
Process control and safety systems are usually merged. Maintaining a safe and healthy working environment is not only an important human resources issue, it’s the law. Whether they’re entry-level workers, seasoned veterans, supervisors, or plant managers, the employees need to understand health and safety risks, the steps they need to take to minimize those risks, and common safety standards and compliance procedures. Should we give special care to one of these two areas? Whereto are we heading from this perspective?
Construction work is a hazardous land-based job. Some construction site jobs include: building houses, roads, tree forts, workplaces, and repair and maintain infrastructures. This work includes many hazardous task and conditions such as working with height, excavation, noise, dust, power tools, and equipment. The most common fatalities are caused by the fatal four: falls, struck by an object, electrocutions, and caught-in/between.
Construction work has been increasing in developing and undeveloped countries over the past few years. With an increase in this type of work occupational fatalities have increased. Occupational fatalities are individuals that pass way while on the job or performing work-related tasks. Within the field of construction, it is important to have safe construction sites.
Over 450,000 workers were employed in the oil and gas extraction and support industries in 2011 (Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages). These workers are engaged in many different industrial processes needed to successfully drill and service a well. These processes frequently require the use of specialized equipment and specialized work crews.
From 2003 to 2010, 823 oil and gas extraction workers were killed on the job-a fatality rate seven times greater than the rate for all U.S. industries (Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries). This database also reports similar fatality rates since at least the early 1990s.
The protection of key elements of our environment is important for human health. The ability to breathe clean air, to have a supply of wholesome drinking water and to be protected against the harmful effects of things like waste and noise are fundamental to our well-being.
The adverse impacts of the environment on health are therefore a core concern of environmental health practitioners (EHPs). An important part of their work involves investigating, identifying and assessing environmental problems and then working out the best approaches to tackle them.
Solutions range from identifying the correct scientific or technical method for reducing or eliminating a problem to taking legal action to sanction those who cause pollution or a nuisance. Securing compliance is not just about the courts, however, and EHPs also have an important role in advising industry and others on how to meet their legal obligations.
Food safety is a scientific discipline describing handling, preparation, and storage of food in ways that prevent foodborne illness. This includes a number of routines that should be followed to avoid potential health hazards. In this way food safety often overlaps with food defense to prevent harm to consumers. The tracks within this line of thought are safety between industry and the market and then between the market and the consumer.
In considering industry to market practices, food safety considerations include the origins of food including the practices relating to food labeling, food hygiene, food additives and pesticide residues, as well as policies on biotechnology and food and guidelines for the management of governmental import and export inspection and certification systems for foods. In considering market to consumer practices, the usual thought is that food ought to be safe in the market and the concern is safe delivery and preparation of the food for the consumer.
