We’ve known for some time that occupational disease is the leading cause of workplace fatality. And new research is now giving us some additional clues to better explain why.
In a 2021 joint report, the World Health Organization and International Labour Organisation estimated that 40% of the nearly two million global worker fatalities occurring each year were attributed to respiratory illnesses linked to harmful occupational exposures. Unsurprisingly, many governments have responded quickly to this sobering data, triggering reviews of existing regulations, and launching new enforcement campaigns to ensure employers are doing everything in their power reduce workplace risk, from monitoring and mitigating exposures, to educate their workforce on how to protect themselves from respiratory hazards.
But is your company doing enough? How well is your occupational hygiene programme functioning to reduce the risk of respiratory illness? And where is further investment needed to ensure your people, and your business, remain out of harm’s way?
Join Cority’s Sean Baldry, CRSP, and Shanna Biggs, CSP, as they explore how organisations can leverage the current environment to refocus efforts and solicit additional resources to improve their occupational hygiene processes, and keep every employee breathing easily. During this webinar, we will explore:
- Industry best practices for developing and maintaining an effective occupational hygiene programme that reduces the risk of respiratory illness;
- Common issues and barriers that may be undermining your hygiene strategy, and what innovative approaches are available to overcome them;
- How to better empower the business to manage occupational hygiene risk, especially when budgets are limited, and/or where hygiene experts are not always available; and
- How digitally transforming your hygiene programme can help employers create new efficiencies, optimize limited resources, and extract the full value from their hygiene data to improve risk detection and control.
