Nissi - Occupational Health & Safety

OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY

 

We protect the lives of people by assisting
and informing the client with the requirements of OHASA.

Nissi Risk Management specialises in protecting the lives of people by assisting and informing the client with regards to the requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHASA).

The general public is uninformed about the regulations, standards and implementation of this Act. This is a risk, since a business owner, developer or even a home owner busy erecting a double story,  can be faced with severe legal charges by their employees, contract workers and/or customers because of non-compliance with OHASA.

OHASA was implemented in order to ensure the following:
  • The protection of persons other than persons at work against hazards to health and safety arising out of or in connection with the activities of persons at work – customers
  • The health and safety of persons in connection with the use of plant and machinery
  • To establish an advisory council for occupational health and safety
  • The health and safety of persons at work
