Health monitoring and exposure monitoring are an important part of ensuring the health of workers. “A business has the primary duty of care to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, both the health and safety of workers. This includes monitoring any conditions at the workplace that could put a worker’s health at risk. Businesses may also be required to monitor worker health or exposure in circumstances specified in health and safety regulations”.
Noise at work can be harmful to hearing, but hearing loss is preventable if you adopt noise control measures and create an environment that protects the health of your workers. Where noise is above acceptable exposure limits, employees are required to have annual screening by their employer.
Where workers are exposed to hazards such as fumes, solvents, dust and other dangerous airborne particles, annual Lung Function Screening is essential.
