Laws About Occupational Safety And Health
This mind map shows Laws About Occupational Safety And Health. Occupational safety and health (OSH) is a multidisciplinary field concerned with the safety, health, and welfare of individuals at work. It is also known as occupational health and safety (OHS), occupational health, or occupational safety. Because these phrases also allude to the field's goals, their use in the context of this article began as an acronym for occupational safety and health program/department/etc. An occupational safety and health program's purpose is to promote a safe and healthy working environment. OSH also safeguards members of the broader public who may be harmed by the workplace. More than 2.78 million individuals die every fifteen seconds as a result of workplace-related accidents or diseases around the world. A total of 374 million non-fatal work-related injuries occur each year. The annual economic cost of occupational-related injury and mortality is estimated to be almost 4% of worldwide GDP. This difficulty has a colossal human cost. Employers in common-law jurisdictions have a common law obligation (sometimes known as a duty of care) to take reasonable care of their employees' safety. Other general duties, specific duties, and government entities with authority to control occupational safety issues may be imposed by statute law; the specifics differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
