Benefits of Occupational Hygiene Monitoring

Occupational hygiene monitoring is the art of assessing the occupational hygiene status of the working environment and ensuring that it is consistently checked and maintained. A large part of ensuring that your productive working environment is successfully managed is by ensuring that the occupational hygiene is assessed, systems are set in place to maintain it, and that any hazards and contamination risks that present themselves are dealt with promptly and efficiently. The main purpose of ongoing occupational hygiene monitoring is to ensure that your workforce does not suffer injury or illness as a direct result of the working environment.

Have you lost employees to illness or injury? If you are lucky enough to say that you haven’t, you are in the best position to ensure that it actually never happens by setting up an occupational health and hygiene system specifically for your business. Unfortunately, many lives are lost through accidents, injuries and illnesses that occur in the workplace. The fact that people are losing their lives alone is reason enough to ensure that your business is compliant with the occupational hygiene regulations that are in place.

According to the International Labour Organisation, which looks at occupational hygiene incidents and statistics globally, over 2 million lives are lost a year as a result of working environment risks. That’s a shocking statistic when you consider that even one life lost is a life too many! It is our aim to help companies create safer, healthier working environments to avoid this. In instances where working environments present risks that cannot be eliminated, processes must be set in place to ensure that workers are aware of the risks and that they are taking precautions to protect themselves.

Below are a few of the benefits of ensuring that you have occupational hygiene methods, services and systems in place:

• Maintains the health of your workforce, which means less downtime due to replacement staff or the requirement for time off work for recovery and treatment.

• Fewer employees will want to or need to leave employment early.

• Healthcare costs that are the responsibility of the business will be reduced.

• A healthy workforce is a productive workforce. If staff members are getting sick or injured, they won’t be able to carry out their tasks to their full potential.

• Achieve and maintain compliance with industry and government imposed health and safety regulations.

• Avoid potential litigation from sick or injured employees. Litigation can be extremely costly to the company.
