Transoceanic's Occupational Health and Safety Training.
Occupational safety and health (OSH) is a cross-disciplinary area concerned with protecting the health, safety and welfare of people engaged in work or employment. The goals of occupational safety and health programs include fostering a safe and healthy work environment. OSH may also protect co-workers, family members, employers, customers, and many others who might be affected by the workplace environment. Occupational safety and health can be important for moral, legal, and financial reasons.

Moral obligations would involve the protection of employee's lives and health. Legal reasons for OSH practices relate to the preventative, punitive and compensatory effects of laws that protect worker's safety and health. OSH can also reduce employee injury and illness related costs, including medical care, sick leave and disability benefit costs. In the process of bringing our Company into compliance with the Health and Safety Policy and Regulations, and in order to meet ISO Standards as well as to adhere to the Laws of the Ministry of Labour, Transoceanic Projects and Development Kenya has put together a Safety and Health Committee. This is an advisory group of worker and management representatives.

The aim of this workplace partnership is to improve and promote health and safety. The Committee meets regularly to discuss health and safety concerns, review progress and make recommendations. The Committee attended 60 hours of training on Occupational Safety and Health at the Directorate of Occupational Health and Safety Services, Ministry of Labor, Mombasa in July, 2012. The training was sponsored by Mr. Arval Headrick Sr., and spearheaded by Ms. Denise Stone.

First Aid is the provision of initial care for an illness or injury. It is usually performed by non-expert, but trained personnel to a sick or injured person until definitive medical treatment can be accessed. Certain self-limiting illnesses or minor injuries may not require further medical care past the first aid intervention. It generally consists of a series of simple and in some cases, potentially life-saving techniques that an individual can be trained to perform with minimal equipment.

The key aims of first aid can be summarized in three key points:
Preserve life,
 Prevent further harm,
 Promote recovery.

First aid training also involves the prevention of initial injury and responder safety, and the treatment phases.

Members of Staff from different departments at Transoceanic Projects and Development Kenya, along with all Safety and Health Committee members, attended training in Occupational First Aid Training in August 2012 and have now received their Certificates for the same.

There are many benefits of having employees complete First Aid Training, such as CPR and injury prevention. In the case of an emergency in the workplace, the more employees who are first-aid trained the better the chance that one will be present if an accident occurs. If there is an accident, an employee who has received first aid training may be able to prevent further injury.
Employees who are first-aid trained are also more likely to be more knowledgeable and conscious of safe behavior in the business environment, thus preventing injuries in the first place.
