According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), a substantial number of workers are oblivious to their right to withdraw from a perilous workplace without encountering adverse consequences. It’s essential for all parties involved, particularly when working with diverse stakeholders, to maintain a mutual comprehension of health and safety protocols. To avoid occupational mishaps and diseases, numerous stakeholders, including employers, execute strategic measures.

Q-Sourcing Servtec Kenya takes immense pride in its role as a pivotal ally in providing recruitment and human resource management solutions. This commitment embodies a continuous progression towards cultivating a culture that prioritizes safety within the workplace. It’s our collective responsibility to not just be spectators, but active contributors towards safety, both in our professional and personal spaces.

Observing safety is a conscious choice that extends beyond mere awareness of the rules. It’s about actively adhering to them, regardless of whether we are under supervision or not. If ever unsure about how to navigate a situation, it’s vital to seek advice on the best course of action.
