What is occupational health and safety all about?


It is about preventing people from becoming ill or being harmed in their working environment. The regulation states that “an employer shall take all reasonable steps that are necessary under the circumstance, to ensure that persons at work receive prompt first aid treatment in case of injury or emergency”.

Welcome to SAFMED Safety & Medical Services!

We offer our clients a complete range of first aid equipment, fire equipment, personal protective equipment, signage, first aid and fire training.

Safmed was established to assist businesses big or small, ensuring that they comply with the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993. An accident at work can happen so quickly, affect so many lives and pockets, just because no precautions were taken.

Employers who do not comply with the Act could face fines of R200 per offense per day. There are also several hidden costs such as medical overtime, rehabilitation repairs, loss of productivity, legal fees and investigation.
