The multi-disciplinary nature of health safety:
The term HSE relates to Health Safety and Environments the backbone of all businesses. It provides a solution for all kinds of work-related or works place hazards. At the workplace, some hazards need to be rectified on an immediate basis to save the worse conditions in the future. Health and safety responsibilities, in organizations, are assigned or placed as per the size and nature of their operations. Organizations with a small workforce and small operations require individuals like managers, supervisors, lead men to deal with health and safety matters. But large organizations with multi-disciplinary operations like production, manufacturing, mechanical and civil works facing high potential hazards are required more professional staff or full departments with technical expertise in the health and safety domain to cope with these hazards. These safety professionals have multi-skills, more relevant education, and proper experience in every operation of the organization to provide a high level of health and safety solutions.
