11th American Health Care Summit

American Healthcare Summit: Track 20-Occupational and Safety Health

Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) is concerned with all elements of workplace health and safety, with a heavy
emphasis on risk prevention. Its objective is to keep people safe from workplace accidents and injury.
Occupational health and safety is a branch of public health that investigates trends in
illnesses and injuries among workers and recommends and implements prevention methods and laws.

It covers a wide range of subjects, from toxicology and epidemiology to ergonomics and violence prevention.
Historically, manual labour occupations, such as factory employees, have been the focus of occupational health and safety measures.

Track 20: Occupational and Safety Health

Current Issues

Today’s occupational health and safety professionals study and regulate a wide range of challenges.
Physical hazards such as lofty heights and heavy gear, for example, may be of greater concern to construction
employees, whereas mental health and repetitive stress injuries may be the emphasis of office workplaces.

Nonetheless, despite significant advancements in workplace regulations, there are a number of safety and
health issues in America’s workforce where considerable work can be done.

Illness Caused by Heat

Every year, hundreds of workers die as a result of working in high heat or humidity, and thousands more fall ill,
according to OSHA.The construction industry accounts for the majority of these incidents, although it can happen
to anyone operating in an uncontrolled setting. Employers are required by federal law to guarantee that their workplaces
are free of safety hazards.

Extreme temperatures are included.
