Managing and improving employee’s health and wellness across workplace and industry is important for improving legislative compliance, productivity, efficiency and morale of an organisation. The world is growing progressively more complex as we encounter new health risks with a growing list of occupational pollutants, toxicants and occupational injuries. Occupational safety and health is an area concerned with protecting the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment. The aims of occupational safety and health programs include fostering a safe and healthy work environment. Occupational safety and health may also protect co-workers, family members, employers, customers, and many others who might be affected by the workplace environment.

Occupational safety and health is the branches of public health that is concerned with the effects of occupational exposure factors on the health and well-being of people in workplace. There is a strong demand by the global health care world for a new breed of contemporary occupational safety and health practitioners. The Occupational Safety & Health Act 1994 requires industries to employ a competent safety and health officer to resolve matters related to workplace safety and health. The dedicated group of safety and health officers are responsible for administering and enforcing statutory requirements, making available technical advice plus providing safety and health education.
