Occupational Safety and Health Management
Occupational safety and health (OHS) also commonly referred to as occupational health and safety (OHS) or workplace health and safety (WHS) is an area concerned with the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment. The goals of occupational safety and health programs include to foster a safe and healthy work environment. OHS may also protect co-workers, family members, employers, customers, and many others who might be affected by the workplace environment.
IBB OHS Policy Statement
The Management of IBB International is dedicated to the health and safety of its employees and for all who are involved in our projects. Protection of employees from injury or occupational hazards is a major concern. We are committed to continuing improvement toward an accident-free workplace through effective administration, education and training. All supervisors and workers must be dedicated to the continuing objectives of eliminating the “near misses” which will greatly reduce the risk of injuries.
Supervisors will be responsible for the health and safety of workers under their supervision. Supervisors are responsible to ensure that machinery and equipment required for use by each worker are safe and that each worker works in compliance with established safe work practices and procedures for each piece of equipment. Workers must receive adequate training in their specific work tasks to protect their health and safety.
This HS policy is reviewed periodically to ensure its ongoing suitability and effectiveness. While we provide a strong and visible leadership commitment to OHS, everyone at IBB International has individual authority, responsibility and accountability for the safety of themselves and others, and an obligation to actively participate in promoting an effective OHS culture.
