Safe and sound: Measures for maintaining occupational health
Occupational health involves more than just preventing injury. Protecting employees’ health and well-being requires awareness of and action against a continually increasing – and increasingly complex – range of workplace hazards.
What is occupational health and its compliance considerations?
Occupational health is a vast area that aims to protect employees’ health. Over the years, the scope of what can harm workers has broadened, expanding beyond dangerous physical conditions to include damaging psychological impact, such as harassment and stress.
