What is Occupational Health?

Occupational health is designed to protect employees from potential risks and hazards on the job, assisting with everything from injury prevention to injury care.

 

Coronavirus

What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) is a disease caused by a virus named SARS-CoV-2. It can be very contagious and spreads quickly. Over one million people have died from COVID-19 in the United States.

COVID-19 most often causes respiratory symptoms that can feel much like a cold, the flu, or pneumonia. COVID-19 may attack more than your lungs and respiratory system. Other parts of your body may also be affected by the disease. Most people with COVID-19 have mild symptoms, but some people become severely ill.

Hearing Conservation -

The Hearing Conservation program provides guidance in guarding against occupational noise-induced hearing loss. Engineering controls (e.g., sound absorption materials, silencers, barriers and acoustical enclosures) are the first order of protection; hearing protective devices, the last order.
