Resumen Occupational safety and health should be given top priority in order to prevent accidents and occupational diseases. Preventive measures should focus on the harmful effects of poor environmental conditions. Responsibilities of the employers in this respect include provision of a workplace free from recognised hazards, ensuring worksites conform to applicable standards, warning employees of potential hazards and ensuring employees follow safety and health requirements. A hazard analysis is a first requirement in minimising or reducing hazards. Dangers from machinery include mechanical hazards due to moving parts and less obvious hazards such as emission of radiation, noise and vibration and ergonomic defects. Machinery should be equipped with appropriate safeguards. Managers, supervisors and workers should be trained in safe working practices. The principles of ergonomics should be applied in all areas.
