Occupational hygiene is the anticipation, recognition, evaluation & control of hazards in the workplace that may result in injury, illness, impairment or affect the wellbeing of workers or members of the community. It uses science and engineering to measure the extent of worker exposure as well as the design and implementation of appropriate control strategies to prevent ill health caused by the working environment.
When implemented properly, occupational hygiene solutions help employers and employees understand the risks associated with a workplace and promotes improved working conditions and safer working practises. OHMS wants all Australian workers to be able to go home safely at the end of every day regardless of where they work, and good occupational hygiene is vital in ensuring this happens.
