Welcome to the Institute's Website.
Welcome to the Occupational Health and Safety Institute home page.
The Occupational Health and Safety Institute was established in 1945 to serve the occupational health surveillance of the mining industry only, with particular focus on occupational lung diseases.
With the coming of new risks and an increased demand for occupational health services due to increased economic activities over the years, the Institute under the Occupational Health and Safety Act No.36 of 2010, evolved to carter for Occupational Health Surveillance of the Agriculture, Construction ,Logistics, Manufacturing, mining resources, energy and other industries.
Our vision is to become a Centre of Excellence in the provision of occupational health and safety services.
