Omaha Occupational Health Services
The use of Omaha occupational health services is important for employers across all industries and can provide protection for both your business and your employees. Workplace occupational health best practices enable employers to better identify workplace hazards and subsequently implement mitigation practices. Adopting stronger Omaha workplace health practices can lead to a reduced frequency of employee injury and illness, contributing to a more enjoyable and productive workspace.
However, it’s important to note that Omaha occupational health practices are not always a choice, and are more of a requirement. When an employer fails to meet workplace occupational health standards set by the state of Nebraska, they can face steep fines and penalties in addition to a reduction in employee safety. This can further result in more frequent employee-related injuries and illnesses, which can also create costly workers’ compensation insurance premiums.
To ensure complete compliance across the state, the Nebraska Occupational Health Surveillance Program has been established to help ensure that employers do what’s necessary to create safe workplaces for employees. In fact, the program offers free health hazards evaluations for businesses to help employers meet local regulations without penalty.
