Managing safety in common workplaces requires effective collaboration among all parties.

Occupational Safety Card training provides employees and others working in a common workplace with basic knowledge of workplace hazards and how occupational safety can be implemented.
The use of the Occupational Safety Card in companies and workplaces is voluntary. his means that the law does not require companies to mandate the use of the Occupational Safety Card, but many companies have adopted it as they see it promoting workplace safety. Several ordering companies demand the card from their own staff, suppliers, and subcontractors.
The administration of the Occupational Safety Card and system is done by the Occupational Safety Center.
