ISO 45001 is the standard of occupational health and safety. The systematic and scientific studies carried out in order to protect from accidents and other factors that may harm human health and to provide a better working environment during the execution of work in workplaces are called OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH and SAFETY.
All over the world, especially in industrialization and technological development countries such as our country, some problems related to Occupational Health and Occupational Safety arise, and these problems affect the work efficiency as well as the health of the employees.
Working environments are full of various environmental factors that pose personal health and safety risks, arising from the processes carried out and the materials used and produced.
In our workplaces where we spend an average of one third of our daily life, every employee and manager has a basic responsibility for the measures to be taken to ensure a healthier and safer life. Providing these safe environments that are suitable for human beings can only be achieved by adopting the rules on this issue as a lifestyle.
As in traffic accidents, our country is one of the countries with the highest number of accident incidents in Europe. Every year, an average of 140,000 occupational accidents, 2,600 disability, 1,500 fatal occupational accidents occur.
According to the statistics made by the International Labor Organization (ILO) , a worker anywhere in the world dies as a result of injury or illness at work, and at least three people are injured every second.
In Turkey, a vast majority of work-related accidents occur in small businesses. However, when our large industrial enterprises are compared with the European countries operating in the same field, it becomes clear how insufficient we are in terms of Occupational Health and Safety.
