Occupational Health and Hygiene Management Systems and How They Can Benefit Your Business
Every business owner has legal and moral obligations to meet, especially if they want their business to run smoothly and be compliant with the specific laws and regulations of their particular industry. Various health and safety procedures and systems will need to be introduced into the workplace, which can be done quite simply if you invest in the right occupational health and hygiene management software packages.
The first steps to ensuring that your various Occupational Health and Hygiene Management obligations are being met, include the following:
- Identify potential health risks that are being posed to your employees as a result of the working environment or processes currently in place.
- Implement measures, procedures and methods that reduce these risks.
- If the risk cannot be reduced, then risk control measures should be considered and implemented.
- Ensure that medical surveillance is being carried out to track each employee’s health status for the duration of their employment.
While this seems like a fairly straightforward “to-do” list, it can be complicated to carry out these steps if you have no procedures to follow or the correct occupational health and hygiene management software. The bigger the business and staff compliment, the more difficult it can be.
There are various methods that business owners and managers can follow to make the Occupational Health and Hygiene Management process simpler and more effective:
- Carry out occupational health and hygiene surveys at the work place. Make sure that these surveys are based around industry imposed regulations.
- Staff members who participate and are considered to be at risk in the work place should be placed under ongoing medical surveillance for their protection and that of the business.
- Incidents should always be recorded and absenteeism should always be investigated to see if any health concerns are directly related to the working environment.
