DOSHS Introduces Unique Identifier for Workplace Registration
Any person who operates a workplace without having been issued with a certificate of registration under the provisions of OSHA, 2007 commits an offence
The Directorate of safety and Health Services (DOSHS) is in the process of upgrading its database. In statement signed by the acting Director, Samuel Thuita, DOSH says that the upgrade will see all workplace registration certificates issued with a unique identifier. All registered workplaces will use the number on their certificates as a unique identifier during the renewal process.
DOSH has also urged all workplaces not registered under Section 44 of the Occupational safety and Health Act, 2007 to apply for registration in order to obtain their unique identify.
Any person who operates a workplace without having been issued with a certificate of registration under the provisions of OSHA, 2007 commits an offence and is likely to face a fine of up to Ksh 100,000 or imprisonment for a period of up to 3 months. Failure to comply following a conviction could make one liable for imprisonment for 7 days for each day on which the offence is continued.
