Few employers conducted workplace surveillance for hazards and risks (Lu, 2009; OHSC
, 2002 5).
For a lengthy supplement to the HSC report suggesting how this might be done, see OHSC
, PRIORITIZATION, supra note 25, at app.
Because of our partnership with OHSC and its highly-skilled work force, this goal is achievable.
The ITOF is a new centralized architecture that will allow OHSC to move forward with amalgamation of its existing operating centers.
Our objective is to dramatically increase the effectiveness and efficiency of our transmission operating function by providing our operating staff with powerful new operating tools," said Ian Bradley, Manager of Operating Facilities and Tools at OHSC.
In an exclusive interview with Izindaba, Marshall revealed that her OHSC (initiated 6 years ago) had now covered 'about 20%' of the nation's public health facilities, benchmarking minimum norms and standards and then measuring the processes they'd put in place.
She said the National Health Amendment Act dictated that the OHSC inspect facilities every 4 years.
This counterintuitive priority order (and negative public reaction to it ) led the OHSC to abandon cost-effectiveness analysis for purposes of developing its final priority list.
Finally, the OHSC rearranged apparently misplaced services "by hand," for example, moving obviously important services rated low by the method higher on the final list.
Establishment office of Health standards Compliances (OHSC

Last month they briefed provincial leaders on how to use the new measurement tools for these core standards, so that once the National Health Amendment Bill is passed making the OHSC a statutory regulatory body, there can be no easy excuses.
An early-warning system with an as yet to be identified set of indicators or incidents would be predicated on compulsory data reporting to the OHSC, leading to an ad hoc inspection or probe.
