Absolute Health Services (AHS) has a team of qualified Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) practitioners, that are able to assist organisations in implementing holistic, logical and successful OHS management services within their unique working environments, thus ensuring alignment with the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993 and its requirements.
Absolute Health Services offers a variety of OHS management services related service offerings, such as:
1.OHS Management Services:
Our unique OHS management services consist of a monthly recurring service offering, where one of our OHS practitioner visits the organisation each month for a day or agreed period, to assist in ensuring that the tailored OHS system is established and maintained to achieve a positive OHS compliance status within the organization.
2. OHS Compliance Assessment:
Are you compliant with the OHS Act and its requirements? Our OHS practitioners are able to conduct an OHS Compliance assessment, which provides a comprehensive assessment of all your OHS documentation, structures, equipment and organisational work space. We will then provide a report which indicates the organizations OHS compliance rating and percentage, all the compliant and non-compliant areas, which OHS section and regulation, municipal emergency services by-law, or South African National Standard (OHS) is contravened. This report can then be utilized to plan and improve the organizations OHS position and compliance rating.
3. OHS Risk Assessment:
Effective OHS risk management is one of any organizations most important OHS compliance objectives. One of our OHS practitioners will conduct an on-site OHS risk assessment of your premises, with the aim to identify and highlight all the individual hazards and their risk ranking. We will then provide a comprehensive written and photographic report, which must be used by management to develop an appropriate risk management plan, aimed at eliminating or mitigating each risk and in so doing create a health, safe, prepared and compliant working environment. This OHS risk assessment must ideally be conducted annually.
4. OHS Equipment Assessment:
The OHS Act, municipal emergency services by-laws and the SANS national building regulations, require organizations premises to be compliant with certain OHS and emergency preparedness requirements. We will send one of our OHS practitioners to assess your working environment to ensure that it contains the correct emergency and OHS equipment for the OHS teams to utilize during an emergency. The OHS equipment assessment only lists the equipment items required and their costs.
We can review your existing OHS correspondence and provide additional OHS correspondence in hard and electronic word format, to assist your organization in creating an up-to-date / current OHS file, which includes an OHS policy, evacuation policy, incident investigation policy, OHS organogram, appointment letters, OHS committee meeting agenda and minutes, etc.
6. Evacuation Drills:
Organizations are required to conduct bi-annual evacuation drills, in order for the entire workforce to practice for the unfortunate occurrence of a possible emergency or disaster. AHS is able to send a team of OHS specialist to your organization, who are able to assist with staging an actual emergency scenario and then conduct the actual evacuation drill. A written and photographic report is then generated listing all the conformances (positives), non-conformances (negatives) and suggested requirements to be implemented, in order to improve on the evacuation process and next evacuation drill.
