A fundamental requirement of any management system is the establishment of means to adequately prevent losses to the organization's resources. In most jurisdictions, a primary focus of any safety program is compliance with regulatory standards. This is typically an ineffective approach to reducing workplace losses. The field of health and safety has matured, and offers a variety of approaches to accomplishing this prevention goal. Topics include: Approaches to Safety, OSH Program Components, Hazard Recognition and Assessment, Hazard Control, Policy Development, Implementing Programs, Typical Programs, and Issues in Safety Management.
