Occupational safety and health refers to the practice of observing and analyzing working environments to ensure that they are safe for employees. Every workplace, be it a factory, a kitchen, or a store, has the potential for accidents to occur. The job of the occupational safety specialist is to anticipate and identify potential hazards so that the employer may make appropriate changes before accidents happen. Potential workplace hazards may include flaws in the design of a building that could cause physical injury to employees, biological or chemical hazards, or on-the-job stress due to overwork and poor working conditions. Occupational safety and health technicians work to prevent harm to property, workers, the public, and the environment.
