Introduction to Occupational Safety and Health

Safety is smart business!

If you want to reduce the costs and risks associated with workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities, you should place as much emphasis on safety and health in your workplace as you do on other management issues such as production, sales, transportation and quality control. The old phrase, “Safety First”, may sound nice, but in reality, safety is more effective if it’s thought to be a priority. In a highly competitive environment priorities can change rapidly. To survive, a company must both produce and be safe. Turn safety into a core value that never changes. Change “Safety First” to “Safety Only.”

“Safety Only” emphasizes the idea that it’s fine to produce as hard and fast as you can, as long as you can do it safely. High productivity is desired, but if a safety hazard or practice is discovered that might cause serious physical harm or death, it should be corrected immediately, even if that means shutting down production. That’s commitment to safety!


The Occupational Safety and Health Act 514 (OSHA) was enacted on 25 February 1994 for the purpose to secure the safety, health & welfare of persons at work and to protect others against risk to safety and health in connection with the activities of persons at work. Every employer has a legal obligation to furnish employment (work) and a place of employment (workplace) free from known hazards that could cause serious injury or death.
