Productivity is tied to occupational health

THE Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) formulates a strategic plan every five years to improve the safety and health of the workforce in the country. The plan is known as the Occupational Safety and Health Master Plan (OSHMP). The current plan is OSHMP2025 for the period from 2020 to 2025.

Currently, industries are more aware of the outcomes and effects of poor occupational safety when people get injured in the workplace rather than how it could affect workers’ well-being. Occupational health is the science and art of anticipating, recognising, evaluating and controlling workplace environmental factors or stresses that may cause sickness, injuries or significant discomfort to workers.
