In line with the objective of NIOSH Malaysia to enhance and promote good Occupational Safety and Health or OSH practices at the workplace, the 5th Borneo Conference of Occupational Safety and Health (BOSH 2017) will be held on 13th until 14th November, 2017 at the Hilton Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
The theme for BOSH 2017 is “Enhancing OSH for Business Competitiveness”, which is in line with the nation’s aspiration to nurture a preventive OSH culture. Enhancing OSH for Business Competitiveness is indeed a challenge that requires strong commitment, long-term and continuous improvement process. It involves the cultivation of constructive changes in both the behaviour and attitude of all parties, especially employers and workers.
Occupational safety and health (OSH) is good for business as well as being a legal and social obligation. Enterprises appreciate that OSH prevents people from being harmed or made ill through work, but it is also an essential part of a successful business, your most serious content on the front page, and your lighter content inside.
Why is OSH an essential part of a good business?
Occupational safety and health:
- helps demonstrate that a business is socially responsible,
- protects and enhances brand image and brand value,
- helps maximise the productivity of workers,
- enhances employees’ commitment to the business,
- builds a more competent, healthier workforce,
- reduces business costs and disruption,
- enables enterprises to meet customers’ OSH expectations, and
- encourages the workforce to stay longer in active life.
Every enterprise can enjoy significant benefits by investing in OSH.
Simple improvements can increase competitiveness, profitability and the motivation of employees. The implementation of an OSH management system provides an effective framework to prevent or minimise accidents and ill health.
The message is clear: good OSH is good business. Enterprises should integrate OSH into business management and raise the awareness of key decision-makers within the organisation.
Do your customers, investors or banks expect a responsible and properly risk-managed approach to OSH? Would your business be disrupted if an incident occurred? Would the loss of one or more key staff harm your business? Could you benefit from cheaper insurance or improved productivity? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then OSH is likely to be a key business success factor for your enterprise.
