Geography Covered: Global | Duration: 20 minutes


Today, occupational safety and health regulations are broad and far-reaching. They require employers in most industries to keep their places of employment safe and free of recognized hazards likely to cause death or serious harm to employees and to maintain workplace health and safety.

Accordingly, more and more companies are tightening their workplace health and safety policies, demanding that everyone — from top manager to most recently hired trainee — play an important role in maximizing workplace health and safety. By following a few simple guidelines, such as those outlined in this course, the risks of injury or illness can often be reduced or eliminated.

Employee injury often results in absences, which have a negative impact on productivity. There can also be indirect costs, such as poor morale and damage to a company’s reputation. In some cases the company could be subject to fines and compensation claims for failure to comply with workplace health and safety laws.
