What is Occupational Health?

Occupational Health is the promotion and maintenance of the highest degree of physical, mental and social well-being of workers in all occupations by preventing departures from health, controlling risks and adaptation of work to people, and people to their jobs. As a preventative discipline in medicine it involves the management, support and addressing of the physical health needs, safety and wellbeing (mental health) of the workforce.

A positive work culture

Organisations are required to comply with occupational health legislation and maintain the expected industry standards. When employees are healthy, they are engaged and productive at work, creating a positive work culture that is rife for attracting and retaining top talent.

An effective occupational health setup will increase the efficiency and productivity of your workforce. In reducing accidents rates which reduces costly compensation claims, absenteeism and associated costs will also be reduced, and employee morale and staff retention improved.

In simple terms occupational health is the effect of work on employee’s health, and effects of employee’s health on work.
