The OSH Training Framework

The main goal of Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) is to prevent the occurrence of accidents and illnesses in the workplace. Factors contributing to these accidents and illnesses are health and safety hazards which can be addressed with the guidance of OSH Laws and Standards as well as OSH Fundamentals.

Figure 1. presents that accidents and illnesses are 98 percent preventable (Heinrich, n.d.), potential workplace accidents/illnesses can be avoided through Hazard Identification (Job Hazard Analysis, Safety Inspection, Work Environment Measurement (WEM), Medical Screening & Surveillance, Risk Assessment, and Risk Control (Elimination, Substitution, Engineering, Administrative, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)—collectively referred to as HIRADC.

If accidents/illnesses do happen (with 2 percent chance), there are means to effectively manage and mitigate their impact. This OSH Course designed for the public sector covers topics such as Workplace Emergency Preparedness, Employee Compensation and Accident Investigation and Reporting.

In institutionalizing safe workplace practices and conditions, the abovementioned strategies can be designed into a formal plan of action to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses—the OSH Program. Following the safety and health principles and guidelines found in the program, there will be a significant improvement in the agency’s compliance with laws and regulations and reduction of costs, including significant reductions in workers’ compensation.

General Objective

That OSH material is indeed helpful and that accidents are preventable and eventually lead to economic savings and saves lives.

What i like most is that, OSH implementation is not only good for the work related transaction but for personal advantage as well. And what i dislike most is the thinking that OSH implementation is an economic burden but as explained further, it is not. And it saves us from injuries or illnesses if not our lives .
