Occupational health & hygiene

This course aims to understand the worker’s own role in prevention and dealing with issues in the field of occupational health and hygiene (OHS).

The objectives are to increase the overall wellbeing of the workforce by educating on the use of PPE (including understanding the detrimental effects of not using it), hygiene, and workplace ergonomics.

This will result in better understanding of basic hygiene principles to prevent illnesses and limit the spread of infections caused by viruses and bacteria.

Education in ergonomics principles will prevent workplace injuries and long-term work-related diseases which will result in a healthier and more productive workforce.
