Q: What is Occupational Health?

The World Health Organisation defines Occupational Health as being that which “promotes and maintains the physical, mental and social wellbeing of all staff”. To achieve this, it uses a number of tools, such as screenings, risk assessments, counselling and health education.

A second definition is that Occupational Health is the promotion and maintenance of the highest degree of physical, mental and social well-being of workers in all occupations by preventing departures from health, controlling risks and the adaptation of work to people, and people to their jobs. (ILO / WHO 1950)
