Abstract or Summary

Health and Safety of employees are of utmost importance for the performance of both the employees and the organisation. The main aim of this research project is to study the health and safety issues existing within an organisation. Qualitative observation methodology was adopted for gathering relevant and appropriate information. Under this method, self-knowledge was implemented and observation of the workplace conducted to identify different issues that can influence the health and safety of workers and the consumers which the organisation serves. Failure to wear personal protective equipment like gloves, shoes, cap, eyeglasses; failure to follow hygiene practices, for instance, leaving the sauce bottle open, are observed to be different issues. Based on these results, it is recommended that the organisation develops a sound health and safety policy, provides proper training to the staff, implements health-related work policies, monitors the practices adopted by the employees, and provides personal protective equipment to employees.
