What is Included in Standard Occupational Hygiene Health Risk Assessments?
Employees across all sectors of the economy should be protected from the occupational risk they are exposed to during the execution of their work duties. This is achieved through adhering to the latest occupational hygiene legislation and requirements, as set out by both government and other industry watchdogs. A health and safety risk assessment forms part of modern occupational hygiene services, and can form the basis of the programme you employ to keep your employees safer on the job.
With better risk management processes, involving risk assessments, analyses, and control practices, you are one step closer to eliminating hazards from the workplace. It provides you with context as to the challenges facing your workplace, and gives you a starting point from which to approach eliminating the health and safety risks that are present.
What Does an Occupational Hygiene Health Risk Assessment Entail?
At IOH Solutions, we’ve carried out thousands of occupational hygiene health risk assessments over the years. Our risk assessments are thorough and comprehensive, and can also be tailored to specific clients’ needs. These risk assessments fall in line with our broader occupational hygiene services, and are a careful examination of what could cause harm to people in your workplace.
This allows the risks to be weighed up according to risk calculation and rating, and we then determine whether enough controls are in place to take precautions against these risks. Health risk assessments aren’t evergreen, and should be reviewed at least once every two years. Some of the legislation we consult in the formation and execution of our occupational hygiene services include the OHS Act No. 85 of 1993 – Section 8, and the Noise Induced Hearing Loss Regulation of 2003 – Section 6, among others. These also determine our health and risk assessments.
