Our approach to occupational safety and health includes:
In an important development, the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) has now been promulgated. Although there are serious weaknesses in the Act, for instance the role of the trade union movement is hardly recognised in any effective way, it still represents an important improvement over the previous fifty year old Factories Act. Before being promulgated, the Government passed an Amendment Act which made a range of changes to the original legislation.
Occupational Safety and Health Authority which, along with the Occupational Safety and Health Agency, was set up as a result of the Occupational Safety and Health Act now has a web page which can be found here. The Authority develops policies and the the Agency is the enforcing body of the OSH Act.
