Why occupational health and welfare

Birchwood Hotel, Johannesburg, South Africa

It can convincingly be argued that self-regulation, in which an organization voluntarily monitors its own adherence to legal and ethical standards, is far preferable to having an outside agency such as the government monitor and enforce those standards. This approach allows organizations to maintain control over the standards to which they are held by successfully self-policing themselves. Apart from the Bureaucratic burden that would be imposed by external enforcement, the cost of setting up such a mechanism is also avoided.
