In short, the definition of what we call occupational safety stands for “Occupational Health and Safety”.

This definition includes the health and safety of workers as well as the health and safety of the workplace.

The priority is to identify the sources of danger within the boundaries of the workplace. Afterwards, these sources of danger must be eliminated or the risks must be reduced to acceptable levels.

The second step is to train employees and introduce occupational safety culture into a lifestyle.

If employees who have attained this awareness comply with the rules and instructions and use the necessary personal protective equipment against sources of danger that cannot be eliminated, a healthy and safe working environment would be established in the workplace.
