Occupational Health

Occupational health and safety is concerned with protecting the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment.

The enjoyment of these standards at the highest levels is a basic human right that should be accessible by each and every worker.

Regardless of the nature of their work, workers should be able to carry out their responsibilities in a safe and secure working environment, free from hazards.

These rights are set out in legislation to ensure that employers are clear about the obligations and the consequences for neglecting them.
