What is occupational health?
Occupational health refers to the identification/awareness and control/management of the risks that come from workplace hazards. This is done in order to establish and maintain a safe and healthy working environment for all employees. Some examples of possible hazards may include any chemical agents, heavy metals such as lead and mercury, physical agents such as loud noise or vibrations, and physical hazards such as electricity or heavy and dangerous machinery. Occupational health problems will occur at work or will develop because of the kind of work that you do. These problems can include:
- Cuts, broken bones, sprains and strains
- Loss of limbs
- Repetitive motion disorders, such as typing
- Hearing problems caused by exposure to loud and constant noise
- Vision problems
- Illness from exposure to radiation
- Exposure to germs
Good job safety courses and prevention practices can reduce your risk of having any of these problems arise. Try to stay physically fit, reduce your stress, set up your work area properly and in company standards, most importantly, use the right equipment and gear when working. If you happen to have one of these issues happen to you – Lifetime Urgent Care is here to help every step of the way.
