R510 R416 Discovery Miles 4 160 Save R94 (18%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) in the workplace is not only a strategic priority in terms of moral or social responsibility, it is also an obligation regulated and governed by law. A well-designed manufacturing process (the operations system) must be both productive and safe, without potential physical, emotional and mental health risks. OSH management has become a very complex multi-functional science within operations management and total quality management (TQM). It focuses on a non-legalistic approach whereby the organisational culture fosters spontaneous OSH and a high quality of work life. This is done by using a TQM approach, based on a functional TQM model.

It provides the theory and the practical steps of routine skills as well as emergency care over a full spectrum of primary care - from the newborn to the elderly. It also looks at topical issues in the South African context, including community-orientated primary care.
