Why it is important to have a health and safety management system?
There are sound economic reasons for reducing work-related accidents and ill-health, as well as ethical and regulatory reasons.
- Economic Reasons
Besides reducing costs, effective safety and health management promotes business efficiency. Thousands of work-related accidents, Work-related diseases and ill-health are more difficult to measure due to their long latency period but result days lost at work each year. These accident and ill-health cases are due to failures and deficiencies in the occupational safety and health management in organizations.
- Legal Reasons
