Fiji Ports – Occupational health and safety certification

Fiji Ports has implemented ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Management System Certification which has a positive impact on employees’ work-life balance, well-being and performance. By implementing this standard, Fiji Ports demonstrates its commitment to creating a work environment that values employees’ personal lives and supports their overall well-being.

ISO 45001:2018 OHS certification requires Fiji Ports to identify and mitigate occupational health and safety hazards. By effectively implementing controls and preventive measures, the risk of work-related injuries and illnesses can be significantly reduced. This, in turn, helps employees maintain a better work-life balance by minimizing the negative impacts of work-related health issues.

A work-life balance is crucial for employee engagement and satisfaction, and ISO 45001:2018 helps to contribute to a healthier work environment, fostering employee satisfaction and commitment. In turn, improved work-life balance positively affects employee performance and productivity. When employees have a healthy balance between work and personal life, they are less likely to experience burnout, stress, and fatigue. This leads to increased focus, efficiency, and effectiveness, resulting in higher productivity levels.

In addition, the standard encourages a proactive approach to OHS management and involves engaging employees in the process. By creating a culture that values health, safety, and work-life balance, Fiji Ports foster a positive working environment. This, in turn, promotes collaboration, trust, and employee satisfaction, contributing to overall organizational success.
