Be OHSA Compliant
The Occupational Health & Safety Act of 1993 states that medical surveillance is a planned medical process which involves carrying out various non-invasive tests on workers. Included in the tests are hearing tests, vision tests, breathing tests, and X-rays. These tests are essential in order to be OHSA compliant in South Africa.
Occupational health medicals should be viewed as a safeguard for both employers and employees. The objective is to detect potential negative impacts and possible hazards early on, so that health and safety is not compromised. If your workers are exposed to any potential workplace risk, it is required by law that you carry out occupational health medicals on an ongoing and regular basis. What sort of risks are common? If your workers are exposed to any of the following, you should be carrying our occupational health medicals:
- Hazardous chemicals
- Biological agents
Regular testing will ensure that the work environment is set up in such a way that there are no negative effects on workers.
