Occupational health care plan is largely based on the enterprise’s risk analysis. It is therefore very important that the risk assessment is carried out thoroughly and adequately. The risk analysis should be updated every time new processes or activities are added to the work environment that may affect the workload of the employees or their exposure to risk factors. Preparation of paperwork for the labor inspectorate alone is simply a waste of time and resources. This way the employer misses an opportunity to reduce the impact of work environment-related risk factors on the health of the employees.
In a situation where there is a considerable shortage of skilled workers in the market, loss of an employee means substantial costs for the company and reduction in productivity. In a worst case scenario, inadequate risk assessment and mitigation can lead to a work accident. The number of fatal work accidents in Estonia has increased in the recent years. Manufacture of metal products, machinery and electrical equipment was the most dangerous field of acticity to work in. This is followed by construction and wholesale and retail trade.
Our specialists wil help you to assess the risk factors of the work environment and their impact on health. Accidents are mostly caused by incorrect risk assessment and inadequate training. Risk analysis which is carried out in cooperation with our specialists can set the course in the right direction in order to minimise the realisation of risks.
