Wearable Devices Used for Occupational Health and Safety

What Is Occupational Health And Safety (OHS)?

Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) is a multidisciplinary field which aims to protect all individuals at workplaces from work-related risks to their health, safety, and well-being. Successful OHS practice requires the collaboration and participation of both employers and workers in health and safety programs.

What Are the Benefits Of Occupational Health And Safety (OHS)?

OHS helps demonstrate that a business is socially responsible. It reduces financial, operational, and legal implications associated with workplace injuries. There is a strong connection between health and well-being of people and their work environments. OHS helps maximize the productivity of employees and enhances their commitment to business, building a more competent and healthier workforce.

How Do The Following Wearables Facilitate Occupational Health and Safety (OHS)?

The wearables that fall under OHS facilitate the monitoring of working conditions and individual health in order to ensure workplace safety. Employers can choose a set of applications that are mandatory for workers to wear that actively monitor health and safety factors. In some cases, these applications are a modern, cost-effective approach to comply with government mandated requirements for workplace health and safety. Workers can also choose applications that help them monitor their own health and well-being independently.
