Information

OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY AUTHORITY

The Occupational Health & Safety Authority is the national regulatory body set up, along with the Occupational Health and Safety Appeals Board, under Act XXVII of 2000, as amended by Act XXXII of 2007 and Legal Notice 426 or 2007. The relative legislation can be read here.

Vision of the OHSA

The development of a culture which goes beyond the workplace, which adopts a holistic view of health and that values risk prevention.

The Maltese workplace will be an environment where health and safety are not considered as afterthoughts but are integrated throughout all work systems and processes.

Appropriate preventative measures will be in place in all workplaces in Malta to minimise the possibility and severity of occupational incidents and illness. The ultimate goal is zero preventable incidents that can affect health and safety.

Employers and employees will be aware of the importance of preventative health and safety measures, and will have the knowledge, expertise and commitment to apply these measures to their workplace. The OHSA will be a partner to organisations, working together to improve health and safety at every opportunity.

Within the context of the European Union, Malta will participate effectively in discussions regarding the continuous development of occupational health and safety levels.

Mission Statement

Working with others to ensure healthier and safer workplaces in Malta.

Mission analysis

The OHSA mission is concise and direct: ‘Working with others’ means that the OHSA intends to involve and to collaborate with others (e.g. persons, employers, workers, constituted bodies, international organisations) in order to gather feedback on policies, generate commitment and obtain consensus – the OHSA does not want to be seen strictly as a controlling body.

The only way by which health and safety in the workplace will improve is if the process is self-regulating i.e. the employers themselves recognise that it is in their best interests to provide their workforce with a healthy and safe environment.
