Diminished health, whether the result of work or non-work-related activities, reduces the quality of life and income potential for employees, as well as negatively impacting those dependent upon them.
Organizations that protect their employees from the risk of injuries or illnesses create a more vibrant, engaging and highly performing workforce.
Participating in occupational health programs, both employers and employees can attain the knowledge and skills to contribute to a safer, healthier, and more productive workplace.
- Drug & Alcohol Programs
- Fitness-to-Work Programs
- Lung Health Programs
- Audiometric Programs
- Wellness Program
- Substance Abuse Training
- Medical Monitoring
Using these programs and focusing attention to workers’ health and safety creates extensive benefits for not only the organization but the employees as well:
- A positive and caring reputation
- Improving staff morale
- Improving staff turnover
- Reducing absenteeism/presenteeism
- Increasing productivity
- Lowers injuries and WCB claims
- Decreases the chances of mis-hires
- Lowers TRIF rates (total recordable injury frequency)
- A safe and healthy working environment
- Enhancing self-esteem
- Reducing stress

- Increasing job satisfaction
- Improves health
An organization that promotes occupational health programs in the workplace, recognizes that a safe and healthy workforce is essential and integrates policies, systems, and practices encouraging a healthy lifestyle at all levels of the organization.
