Oncology Centre gets upgrade to international standards
Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) becomes a more and more important topic at workplaces, hence that is why the Namibian Oncology Centre (NOC), recently signed a service level agreement with ATA International Namibia on Health and Safety Management Service.
The agreement was put in place to upgrade the existing Health and Safety standard on International standard.
ATA International Namibia is a national and international accredited service and training provider for
OHS, Emergency Medicine, Industrial Fire Fighting and First Aid.
The NOC approached ATA International to look into the existing OHS of the Namibian Oncology Centre as their preferred service provider.
“ATA International offers a unique service and training combination. They customized the Health &
Safety upgrade for our needs and on high standards,” said Anthea van Wyk, Unit Manager of the NOC.
The contract includes upgrading of policies and procedures, training in Health & Safety, Industrial
Fire Fighting and Evacuation Marshall. Additional are regular training sessions for supervising staff
and a bi annual evacuation exercise of the entire Namibian Oncology Centre.
“The Health & Safety Management Solution is a product of us, to assist any company individual for
their needs and to be compliance with the Namibian labour act as well with international
standard,” said Managing Member of ATA International Namibia, Fabian Martens.
An active OHS programme will decrease work related accidents and prevent for workplace illness, as permanent headaches, with good workplace ergonomics. This will increase the productivity of the company, he said.
