Occupational Health and Safety Surveillance
Occupational health and safety surveillance provides information on where, how, and why workers get injured or hurt on the job. We study trends in worker injuries and illnesses so that our surveillance programs make a difference in worker safety. This information is used to improve worker health and safety through appropriate prevention activities.
Workplace injuries and illnesses can be mitigated by control or elimination of hazards. Our surveillance program echoes our company’s theme of Prevention instead of Treatment. Surveillance is conducted for a number of industrial programs to identify hazardous conditions or to benchmark occupational illnesses and then develop and provide remediation and prevention services.
IHS’ Occupational Health and Safety Surveillance program has evaluators and clinical specialists that conduct the following activities:
- Track patterns of work-related injury, illness, and fatalities in order to quantify and describe the occupational exposures.
- Hearing evaluations and conservation
- Respiratory evaluation and protection program
- Visual testing
- Drug testing
- Develop and implement interventions that will reduce the risk of exposures in the future
- Monitor both the immediate and long-term health effects of occupational exposure
- Collaborate with partners to identify methods to modify work practices and share this information with companies that have similar exposures
