Risk management and OHS


OHS (Occupational Health and Safety) is a component of risk management. Businesses always tend to experience risk management as a constraint. It has to be said that the pressure exerted by stiff bank and insurance requirements and the conditions bearing on access to their risk coverage services convince many directors that it is simply not a viable option. The key to meeting this challenge is: prevention.
