Health, Safety, and Environment are essential components of any workplace. A safe and healthy work environment is crucial to the well-being of employees, customers, and other public members. Employers must provide a safe and healthy work environment for their employees. Not only is this a legal requirement in many countries, but it's also good business practice. A safe workplace can increase productivity, reduce absenteeism, and improve employee morale. In contrast, a workplace that doesn't prioritize health and safety can lead to accidents, injuries, and even fatalities. Workplace health and safety is all about sensibly managing risks to protect workers and businesses. Workplace safety is the condition of being free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm. Good health and safety management is characterized by strong leadership involving managers, workers, suppliers, contractors, and customers. In a global context Health, Safety, and the Environment are important parts of the movement toward sustainable development.
