Abstract

Background: Occupational health and safety management system is a concept of managing occupational
health and safety systematically and comprehensively in a complete management system. This study aims
to obtain information about the level of implementation of the Occupational Health and Safety Management
System at Ibnu Sina Hospital, Makassar City.
Method: This study uses descriptive qualitative method. The data obtained through in-depth interviews
were then analyzed using a deductive mindset.
Results: Commitment and policies exist and have been issued in the decision of the Hospital Director.
Planning is carried out by the planning subdivision which collects occupational health and safety data.
Implementation is carried out by socialization/counselling on Occupational Health and Safety, training and
installation of light fire extinguishers, use of personal protective equipment, installation of dangerous signs
on equipment that pose a danger. Measurement is assessed by staff compliance to work while performance
evaluation cannot be implemented. Monitoring has not been carried out on the Occupational Health and
Safety Policy.

implemented. So it is suggested to hospital managers to further increase the efforts of the Occupational
