Occupational Health and Safety Management

Occupational Health and Safety Management

Occupational safety and health management is a comprehensive approach to ensuring that workers and the work environment are protected and a culture of safety is promoted in an organization. It refers to the policies, procedures and practices implemented to prevent and minimize occupational hazards, protect the health and well-being of employees, and comply with applicable standards and regulations related to occupational safety and health.

Occupational health and safety management involves the identification and evaluation of occupational hazards present in the work environment, the implementation of prevention and control measures to minimize such hazards, and the promotion of safe workplace practices through employee training and awareness.

In addition, occupational health and safety management includes establishing clear policies and procedures, assigning roles and responsibilities, conducting periodic audits and reviews to ensure compliance with rules and regulations, and managing incidents and emergencies in the workplace.

Effective occupational safety and health management not only protects employees from potential occupational accidents and illnesses, but also contributes to enhancing the company's reputation, reduces costs associated with occupational injuries and illnesses, and promotes a safe and healthy work environment for all workers.

Services we offer:

Advice on personal protective equipment.

Personal protective equipment counseling is a critical aspect. Personal protective equipment are protective devices used to protect workers from hazards that cannot be completely eliminated. These may include hard hats, gloves, safety glasses, respirators, among others.

A PPE advisory service involves assessing the specific hazards associated with the tasks workers perform and recommending the most appropriate PPE to protect them from those hazards. It also involves training workers on how to use PPE effectively and how to perform proper maintenance and cleaning.

Training

QCS has instructors certified by the INA to provide Occupational Health training in both traditional and competency-based training.

This is a continuous and systematic process aimed at preventing occupational accidents and illnesses and promoting a safe and healthy work environment. It is important for companies to implement effective OHS management to ensure that their workers are protected and to comply with occupational safety and health regulations and standards set by governments and regulatory bodies.

OHS management involves identifying risks, assessing hazards and implementing risk prevention and control measures. This includes the promotion of a safety and health culture in the organization, the training and education of workers, the regular evaluation of work equipment and processes, and the measurement and evaluation of the results of prevention actions.

- Occupational Health Committee education and training: The Occupational Health Committee is responsible for the implementation and monitoring of the Occupational Health and Safety program in the organization. We provide education and training to the members of the Commission to enable them to perform their duties effectively.

- Formation and training of the Emergency Brigade: The Emergency Brigade is a group of workers trained to respond to emergency situations in the workplace. We provide education and training to the members of the Brigade so that they can respond effectively to emergency situations, such as fires, earthquakes, among others.

- Training to personnel on specific Occupational Health topics: We offer training to the organization's personnel on specific Occupational Health topics, such as the use of personal protective equipment, prevention of musculoskeletal injuries, ergonomics, among others.

- Training of personnel in critical tasks: We offer specialized training to workers who perform critical tasks, such as work at heights, confined spaces, excavations, electrical risk, hot work, lifting loads, heavy machinery, among others. This training aims to ensure that workers are trained to perform these tasks safely and efficiently.

In this sense, it offers a series of services that seek to ensure the welfare of workers and compliance with the rules and regulations governing the country.

Among the services offered are the preparation, implementation and follow-up of occupational health programs, emergency preparedness and response plans, and integrated waste management programs. These programs are designed according to the specific needs of each company and seek to ensure compliance with legal regulations and the obtaining and renewal of operating permits.

They are also in charge of the registration of the Occupational Health Office before the Occupational Health Council of the Ministry of Labor, as well as the registration and follow-up of the occupational health commissions before the same body. This ensures that the company complies with legal requirements and is up to date in occupational health and safety.

In addition, they offer assistance with INS-related paperwork, such as personnel inclusions, RT certifications, accident reports, payroll, tracking of policy costs and uninsured cases. They also provide advice and assistance with CCSS procedures.

Occupational health and safety management

The diagnosis of occupational health conditions and work environment is an important service in occupational health and safety management. It consists of a comprehensive assessment of the work environment and working conditions of employees, in order to identify risks and factors that may affect their health and well-being.

Through this evaluation, aspects that may affect the health and quality of life of personnel, such as noise, lighting, ventilation, ergonomics, among others, can be detected. Once the risks have been identified, preventive programs and measures can be implemented to mitigate the negative effects on workers' health.

General risk assessment is another important tool in occupational health and safety management. It consists of the identification and analysis of the risks associated with the different work activities, processes and equipment used in the company. Based on this assessment, programs can be designed and implemented to address and prevent the identified risks.

The creation and implementation of the Occupational Health, Quality and Environment Policy is another service offered by occupational health and safety management. This policy defines the company's objectives and goals in terms of occupational safety and health, as well as the plans and strategies to achieve them. The implementation of such a policy is essential to ensure that the company has a well-established safety and occupational health culture and that the necessary measures are taken to protect the health and well-being of workers.

Developing and implementing an Occupational Risk Prevention Management System is another important task in occupational health and safety management. This system involves the creation and documentation of general procedures, safe work instructions and forms that help prevent and control occupational hazards.

Housekeeping programs are another activity that can be carried out within the framework of occupational health and safety management. These programs help maintain a safe and healthy work environment by promoting hygiene, order and cleanliness in the workplace.

Finally, the participation in financial awards from the INS each year is a tool that motivates the company to maintain high standards of occupational health and safety by receiving financial recognition for its efforts in maintaining a safe and healthy work environment.

Emergency management

The Emergency Management service aims to prepare the company and its employees to deal with emergency situations that may arise in the workplace. This involves a detailed analysis of the threats and vulnerability levels in each of the work centers, in order to define evacuation routes, emergency exits and meeting points in the event of an emergency situation.

Once the risk assessment has been carried out, recommendations are made regarding the equipment and elements necessary for emergency response, as well as the training of the emergency brigade with the necessary frequency. It is important to inspect and maintain the emergency care elements, such as first aid kits, lights, sirens, fire extinguishers, splints, collars, etc.

In addition, emergency preparedness drills are planned in order to put the emergency plan into practice and ensure that personnel are prepared to act in the event of a real situation. In this process, the structure of the emergency brigade is defined and specific protocols are established for each of the members of the brigade.

The Emergency Management service is essential to ensure the safety and protection of workers in the event of emergency situations. Proper planning and staff training are essential to ensure that the company can respond effectively to unforeseen situations and reduce the risk of harm to the health and safety of workers and the environment.

Measurements of physical and chemical agents

Measurements of physical and chemical agents are an important aspect of occupational safety and health (OHS) management that refers to the assessment of workers' exposure levels to physical and chemical agents in the workplace, such as noise, vibration, radiation, dust, smoke and chemical vapors.

As a service, OHS management can provide advice and guidance on how to make accurate and reliable measurements of physical and chemical agents in the workplace, as well as how to interpret and apply measurement results to protect workers from health and safety hazards.

Measurements of physical and chemical agents are essential to ensure that workers are exposed to safe levels of these agents and to identify potential risks to workers' health and safety. In addition, measurements can also be useful for evaluating the effectiveness of preventive and corrective measures taken to reduce exposure levels.

As a service, OHS management can help organizations implement programs to continuously monitor worker exposure levels to physical and chemical agents, as well as develop policies and procedures to reduce exposure levels to safe levels. In addition, OHS management can help organizations implement training programs for workers on how to protect themselves from health and safety hazards associated with exposure to physical and chemical agents.


Occupational Health Outsourcing Service

As a service, occupational health outsourcing can provide a number of benefits to organizations, such as:

  1. Cost reduction: by outsourcing OHS activities, organizations can reduce their operational and administrative costs, as they do not have to hire specialized personnel or invest in equipment and technology to carry out these activities.
  2. Access to OHS experts: by contracting with a specialized third-party OHS provider, organizations have access to experts in the field who can provide advice and guidance on how to comply with legal requirements and improve OHS management.
  3. Flexibility: OHS outsourcing can provide organizations with the flexibility to adapt to changes in workload and staffing requirements, allowing them to focus on their core business.
  4. Risk reduction: by outsourcing OHS activities, organizations can reduce their liability and risk in the event of an accident or incident related to workers' health and safety.
