Why Your Workplace Needs an Occupational Hygiene Programme
Managing a productive work environment successfully requires the managing of occupational hygiene. An effective occupational hygiene programme encompasses science and engineering to prevent ill health in the workplace by identifying stressors and hazards. It is an essential and inescapable part of properly managing any professional working environment.
According to the International Labour Organisation, an estimated two million lives are lost annually due to work-related accidents and illnesses around the world. This is just one indication of the importance of comprehensive occupational hygiene programmes.
If you’re still unconvinced, consider the benefits that an occupational hygiene programme offers your business:
- It lowers healthcare and social costs.
- It boosts employee health and improves life expectancy.
- It helps you gain the most out of your employees’ potential.
- It allows for boosted productivity and efficient working processes.
- It effectively reduces the number of employees who have to leave employment early.
