Occupational Health and Safety

Safety, Health and Environment (SHE)

Course Overview

Prevention of workplace accidents and injuries is the aim of an effective occupational health and safety (OH&S) program. Having a safe work environment where prevention is the key to an organization's success is important to all workplace parties — employers, workers including supervisors and managers, and OH&S committees. When all workplace parties work co-operatively to incorporate safe work practices and procedures into their daily work activities, the savings in human and financial costs are immeasurable.

When workplace accidents and injuries occur, the costs are high for workers and employers. For example, workers may sustain an injury or illness leading to pain and suffering, a disruption in their daily lives, a loss in their regular wages, and a negative impact on their families. Employers also experience loss; for example, a decrease in worker morale and the loss of experienced workers; an increase in costs arising from repair and/or replacement of equipment, materials, and product; and administrative costs such as time to hire or re-train replacement workers. Development, implementation and evaluation of an OH&S program will be instrumental in preventing workplace accidents and injuries and the associated costs for both employers and workers
