A global increase in occupational health and safety laws and regulations has resulted in an increased demand for professionals in the field. Maintaining health and safety in the workplace is a legal requirement for all businesses to ensure employees’ safety and wellbeing. Despite the legal requirements, employers are also increasingly hiring safety officers in an effort to avoid the financial losses of injuries, as well as the damage to its reputation because of accidents or negligence. But this is not it. Following a clear management system is crucial for the success of the department’s objectives. An OHS management system is more than just a programme. It includes policies, systems, standards, records, and involves incorporating health and safety practices into business processes. Having an effective management system improves the ability to continuously identify hazards and control risks. Boecker® has designed its own Health and Safety management system, The Occupational Health and Safety Lite™ (OHS Lite™) certification programme, to assist small and medium enterprises in achieving a consistent standard of occupational health and safety in their premises as well as protect employees and workers from any harm and danger at work.

Indoor air quality has become one of the most serious environmental concerns as an average person spends about 22 hours indoors on a daily basis. Most people don’t think about their HVAC system’s ductwork until something has gone horribly and expensively wrong with it. Poor indoor air quality is being increasingly linked to a variety of illnesses, and modern home design has made maintaining good indoor air quality difficult because new homes are so tightly sealed for energy efficiency purposes. Cleaning and disinfecting the AC ducts can help keep mould and contaminants from constantly recirculating through your home and giving rise to respiratory problems and other illnesses.
