Occupational Hygienist Report

Occupational Hygienist Reports

Workplace injuries and occupational diseases are critical concerns in work and construction sites. Construction companies and organisations are now making a concerted effort to promote worksite safety and health awareness to help reduce the number of injuries sustained in the workplace and reduce the reduce the risks associated with certain diseases. At the core of these initiatives is the preparation and adoption of good occupational hygiene, and the establishment of a health and safety committee. With a good occupational hygiene program at work, health risks can be eliminated, or at least limited.

To come up with a program, it is important that a work site assessment should be made to identify the kind of occupational diseases that may arise in the workplace.

Some of the occupational diseases that are subject to reporting through a professional hygienist report are as follows:

  • Occupational asthma
  • Severe cramp of the hand or forearm
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Occupational dermatitis
  • Any occupational cancer
  • Tendonitis or tenosynovitis of the hand or forearm
  • Any occupational disease attributed to the exposure to a biological agent
