Occupational Health Management: Employee Health is your business

It’s 2019, and the U.S. economy is again in a cycle of low unemployment, which means that employers are striving to keep their current employees and struggling to find new ones. In these economic cycles, occupational health management, team building, and benefits are high-interest items. However, the reality is that smart employers are aware that taking care of their employees and keeping the best employees on the team is a priority continually.

Occupational health management helps employers protect their team, increase productivity, and reduce unemployment claims by monitoring the environment and employees’ health, reducing the incidents of accidents in the workplace, and providing solutions to protect employee health. The costs of ignoring occupational health are very real.

“Workplace incidents cause an enormous amount of physical, financial, and emotional hardship for individual workers and their families. Combined with insufficient workers’ compensation benefits and inadequate medical insurance, workplace injuries and illnesses cannot only cause physical pain and suffering but also loss of employment and wages, burdensome debt, inability to maintain a previous standard of living, loss of home ownership, and even bankruptcy,” according to a recent OSHA white paper

If your employees are your business, how's business?

If you haven’t yet chosen to implement an occupational health management program, or you are lacking elements that could improve the health, and thereby the productivity of your team, it’s time for a change. A leadership team that invests time and money into creating a culture rich in environmental, health and safety initiatives will see improved behaviors, higher productivity, better worker morale, lower employee expenses and an overall increase in the bottom line. Ignoring your employees could cost you your business. It’s time for a change.
