First Aid in the Workplace
In any working environment, employees can be injured or fall ill whilst performing their duties. Regardless of whether or not their injuries (or illness) were caused as a result of the work they perform, it is the duty of the employer to ensure they receive immediate and appropriate medical attention.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act No 85 of 1993 as amended by the Occupational Health and Safety Amendment Act No 181 of 1993 states that an employer must take all reasonable steps that are necessary under the circumstances to ensure that employees in the workplace receive prompt first aid treatment in the event of injury or medical emergency.
More than 5 employees are employed at a workplace, the employer must provide a suitable first aid box which is accessible in the workplace for the treatment of the injured
More than 10 employees are employed at a workplace, the employer must ensure that for every group of up to 50 employees at that particular workplace there is at least one person readily available during normal working hours who is in possession of a valid first aid certificate.
Corporate Wellness programme
Many employees going through occupational health clinics suffer from undiagnosed chronic illnesses, e.g., hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes, etc. Even though we educate them on the spot, the treatment non-compliance percentage remains exceptionally high.
We identified the significance of an employee wellness programme, providing training and education which proved invaluable once implemented. With the power of knowledge given to employees, the treatment compliance increased significantly. With our first hand knowledge and extensive years of experience, we are the ideal professionals to deliver your Wellness Programme.
