What is occupational health?
Occupational health focuses on the way your work affects your health. It is about making sure a person is fit for the job they do.
Ensuring that your workforce remain happy, healthy and motivated throughout their employment with you will help to maintain high standards of practice and increase productivity; resulting in a profitable, successful business.
The main areas targeted by occupational health are:
- The promotion and maintenance of physical, mental and social well-being of each worker in each occupation
- The prevention of ill or damaged health to workers, caused by their role or work environment
- The protection of workers in their work environment, from risks resulting in possible injury or adverse physical or mental health
