Health and Safety in the Work Place

Occupational health and safety has been defined by the International Labor Organization (ILO), 2001 as: “The prevention and maintenance of the highest degree of physical, mental and social well-being, the prevention of ill-health among workers caused by their working conditions, The protection of workers from factors adverse to their health in their employment, and the placing and maintaining workers in occupational environments adapted to their individual and psychological conditions.”
Health refers to the protection of bodies and minds of people from illness resulting from materials, processes or proceeding used in the work place whereas safety is protection of people from physical injury (Hughes and Ferret, 2008).
Safety means a state in which no danger of a damage causing accident exists. A high-level of occupational health and safety contributes to the achievement of material and economic objectives and provides high quality and performance in working life.
