Primary & Preventative Healthcare
Primary is the ‘first’ level of healthcare intervention which is considered essential and basic to sustain the health and wellbeing of an individual. Interventions are based on practical, scientifically sound and affordable methods that are universally acceptable in terms of prevention and treatment. This could include the screening process, management of diseases, first aid, etc.
Occupational Health Care
In South Africa, organisations must comply with the Occupational Health & Safety Act No. 85 of 1993 and the mining industry with the Mine Health & Safety Act 29 of 1996 respectively.
The purpose of Occupational Health Care Interventions is primarily concerned with the protection, safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment as well as any visitors to the work site. This includes health and safety practices that may impact on the environment. The idea is to implement Best Practice for least impact and sustainability for health / safety of people and surrounds as well as the protection of the environment.
