Occupational Health and Safety

Occupational health refers to the identification and control of the risks in the workplace arising from physical, chemical, and other hazards in order to establish and maintain a safe and healthy working environment. These hazards may include chemical agents and solvents, heavy metals such as lead and mercury, physical agents such as loud noise or vibration, and physical hazards such as electricity or dangerous machinery.
