Safety Solutions Africa (SSA) is at the cutting edge of professional health and safety service delivery in Southern Africa, providing a total risk solution that serves to reduce your business operating costs, including your business’s insurance premiums - if correctly implemented.
Issues pertaining to health and safety impact every business sector, and in our country, the Occupational Health and Safety and Risk Management industries are growing rapidly as a result of changing legislation and increased awareness.
Globally, the value and importance of Occupational Health and Safety compliance has been acknowledged for several years. Based on statistics from the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the United Nations (UN), 6,300 people die every day due to occupational accidents or work-related diseases. This equates to more than 2.3 million deaths a year. Fatalities and injuries are especially high in developing countries. The reason for this is that a significant portion of these countries is engaged in potentially risky industries such as agriculture, fishing and mining.
Besides the fact that the lack of prevention around occupational accidents and diseases has adverse effects on employees and their loved ones, organisations and society at large are also adversely affected by the tremendous associated costs....Athough it is required by law in our country that all businesses comply with Occupational Health and Safety legislation, there are still many employers who believe they are exempt from strict health and safety rules. Unfortunately, the consequences of this fact only become clear to most clients following a claim that is not honoured by one’s insurers.
Safety Solutions Africa provides a full range of Occupational Health and Safety solutions, from initial assessment through to practical implementation and training. With an established portfolio of contracts throughout Southern Africa, Safety Solutions Africa has the expertise to provide any company with effective Occupational Health and Safety management systems.
