Word from the CEO

Welcome to our blogspot which covers the day to day activities of our organization. OSHA is currently striving to improve its services to clients which would consequently enhance the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) situation in the country which was facing severe deterioration. To achieve this, many strategies have been put in place and have all been centered into improving the agency’s operational systems such as extending services closer to people, increasing its workforce, engaging them in appropriate customer care training as well as encouraging and motivating them to serve customers at the required speed and at high standards. However, it is well known that low level of awareness on OHS matters among st owners/occupiers of workplaces, workers and the general public is one of major challenges constraining the authority in its efforts to improve the situation. Owing to that, the authority is now investing much of its resources to rectify the situation. Among other programmes, it has now designed a special campaign aimed at registering more workplaces as well as increase public awareness on its roles and associated benefits. The campaign started early in January by engaging media and other OSHA stakeholders. So far the campaign has been executed in the Lake Zone and partly in some areas of the Central Zone. The campaign is expected to be rolled out in the rest zones of OSHA operations. I kindly invite you to visit this OSHA blog, should you find useful information please share it with others, for missed information please let us know so we may improve.
Dr. Akwilina V. Kayumba Chief Executive Officer, Occupational Safety and Health Authority (OSHA
