Building a culture of occupational health and safety is vital for all businesses and is key to ensuring not just workplace compliance, but sustainable competitive advantage. In the UK, according to HSE’s latest statistics, 1.4 million workers suffered from work-related ill health in 2018/2019, causing 28.2 million working days lost and £15 billion lost for the economy annually!
To manage risks and to meet today’s standards in occupational health, the first place to start is to make sure you assess and measure risks accurately, and the best way begin is by gaining a thorough understanding of the solutions and equipment available for monitoring these risks. This knowledge is at the core of building a viable and successful program for workplace safety.
