What is occupational safety and Health?
As defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) "occupational health deals with all aspects of health and safety in the workplace and has a strong focus on primary prevention of hazards." Health has been defined as "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." Occupational health is a multidisciplinary field of health care concerned with enabling an individual to undertake their occupation, in the way that causes least harm to their health. Health has been defined as it contrasts, for example, with the promotion of health and safety at work, which is concerned with preventing harm

REASONING FOR CHOICE
Occupational Health and Safety is a requirement between employers and employees, the public and witnesses that could be affected by poor work habits and the equipment. It is the employer’s obligation to provide a safe working environment and safety equipment for the staff.
The reasoning behind the chose to implement Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) is due to the fact that employees are aware but not in great depth. Promoting OHS is not only an advantage for the employees but also the management staff. The aim of legislations and obligations are to minimise the chance of an injury. As the employer there are certain obligations that are enforced to minimise

I have picked the second article on the late officer Brent Long who passed away while on a duty mission. Everyone was talking about the incident in town and wanted to know about what went wrong during the mission to stop the fugitive. I know that being a cop is a job that involves a lot of risks especially that it has to deal with criminals most of the time, and as we can see in this case the officer was not lucky as his other mates. This is probably not the first case where a cop has been killed on duty, but I believe that this should be a wake up call to the police and other authorities dealing with criminals to take some more extensive safety measures in order to

Within this piece of evidence I have shown how I identified a vital area of my work in which I could be done better. Hence, I came up with an idea for a Health and Safety Committee at work.
WHAT DID I WANT TO ACHIEVE?
The original idea was generated with hope that I could enable the team to take ownership and responsibility within risk management and develop an environment in which was pro-active and not just re-active. This was part of our Policy statement but I felt we were reactively dealing with issues in which with more thought and attention could have been prevented in the first place or have had fewer implications for the budget/resources/people.

Increasing the workload for workers whose numbers have already been reduced to cut costs and save money creates a harmful cycle because worker retention reduces because of dissatisfaction. This means even fewer workers are left with an even heavier workload.
