Occupational Safety and Health Officer

Occupational safety and health (OSH) refers to the legislation, policies and procedures that aim to protect the health, safety and welfare of all people in a workplace.

Safety in the construction industry is critical and is managed by OSH qualified officers and managers. Workplace hazards are identified, risk is assessed and policies, procedures, controls and behaviours are implemented and enforced by OSH officers to maximise safety and health outcomes within the working environment.

OSH officers are involved in all aspects of industry activity, including those undertaken by office workers, site workers and others included in company activity.
