Occupational Health is defined as, “the identification and control of…workplace hazards in order to establish and maintain a safe and healthy working environment.” The ability to ensure safe working practices and conditions for your employees is not only a moral requirement of doing business; you are also legally required to do so as a business owner. Here are 5 Reasons Occupational Health Solutions are important.
It’s Your Legal Responsibility
In your respective country, there is probably a government body requiring your compliance with various occupational health solutions. In the United States, this agency of the Department of Labor is called the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA for short). Other bodies enforce occupational health on a state & municipal level, but failure to comply with OSHA regulations can be costly!
Violating OSHA regulations by not implementing occupational health solutions can be very costly to your business. According to OSHA, the maximum penalty can cost you anywhere from $13,260 to $132,598 per violation. AllOne Health provides regulatory compliance exams designed to ensure compliance with these government regulations.
Safer Workplace=Better Workplace
Prioritizing the occupational health and safety of your staff by implementing occupational health solutions gives you the opportunity to have employees efficiently work in a safe environment. By providing on-site testing services for health, drugs & alcohol, and regulatory compliance exams, you can see that your staff is working efficiently & productively.
In the hiring process, it is important to make sure you are bringing in people who comply with your background screening plus drug & alcohol testing requirements. Having these services at your disposal can allow you to bring in the type of staff you require for your business allowing for increased productivity.
