    Workplace health tool ‘shows what good practice looks like’

    Workplace health tool ‘shows what good practice looks like’

    A new tool has been launched to help managers and their organisations get to grips with exactly what “good” practice looks like when it comes to managing workplace health risks.

    The new version of the Health in Industry (HI) Management Standard has been launched by the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS), the Chartered Society for Worker Health Protection.

    Last year the BOHS launched its Breathe Freely initiative to raise awareness of occupational lung disease in the construction industry and provide solutions to the problem.

    ‘User-friendly guidance’

    The society says the initiative has helped raise awareness of the need to put more focus on work-related health risks, many of which can cause diseases that only emerge years later.

    But the BOHS adds that it has shown employers, supervisors and managers often want to know what the required good practice actually looks like.

    It says the updated tool, compiled by the country’s top occupational hygienists, sets out exactly what standards need to be met and what needs to be done in workplaces to protect workers from health risks.

    The society’s chief executive, Steve Perkins, says the tool will help managers achieve good practice by providing “an unprecedented level of user-friendly advice and guidance”.
