2014-10-14 Annual SOHSA Conference 2014 - The Silent H

The Annual SOHSA Conference 2014, to be held on Tuesday, 14 October 2014, will tackle the health aspect of health and safety that is often given less attention that the more obvious, and immediate, effects of other safety concerns. 

For years health and safety practitioners, regulators and organisations have concentrated on the safety aspect of health and safety. This should definitely not be rebuked – as now, forty years since the implementation of the health and safety at work act in 1974, significant achievements have been made in the reduction of injuries and deaths due to work activities – including a 85% reduction in fatalities and 77% reduction in non-fatal injuries.

However, less has been achieved in regard to occupational health – with figures suggesting up to a 85% increase in ill-health and only a 45% reduction is musculoskeletal disorders.

Facing substantial rises in mental ill-health diagnoses – with increasing rates of depression, anxiety and stress all on the rise - and a host of other ill-health issues, perhaps it is now time that focus and attention is given to that silent ‘H’, that is occupational health.
