Occupational Health at Work
Occupational health in your workplace may have a positive, long-term impact on your worker’s health, safety, and well-being and your organization’s bottom line. There’s an economic burden that comes along with occupational injuries and illnesses, fatal and nonfatal, while on the job.
Occupational health aims to prevent work-related illness and injury by:
- Encouraging safe working practices
- Ergonomics (studying how you work and how you could work better)
- Monitoring the health of the workforce
- Supporting the management of sickness absence
Setting the Stage for Success
Your employees are your most significant investment. When they’re sick or injured, your business, and the workplace environment and culture suffer. It doesn’t matter your company’s size or industry, an occupational health programme can help reduce overall health care costs and improve employee productivity. It’s best to be proactive and prevent illness by protecting the health of your workers. Your company can more effortlessly perform at its peak and help you maintain compliance with occupational safety and health regulations and worker’s compensation guidelines.
