Occupational Health

In today’s workplace there are many hazards that exist which may effect the long term health of employees. Occupational Health or Health Surveillance Monitoring Programs frequently assess the health of workers yearly in order to prevent occupational illnesses such as silicosis, asbestosis, noise-induced hearing loss, various cancers, lead poisoning, repetitive stress disorders and more. For years many employers did not see the importance of this monitoring until employees began to show signs of these occupational illnesses after 15-20 years of exposure. This prompted the implementation of new standards in the industry which now mandates employers to do everything reasonably practicable in order to protect the health of employees or they face strict penalties and fines.

At POIRIERCASTRO HSE, we assist our clients in meeting and maintaining these new standards and also help them better manage their HSE programs. To start we help them interpret the standards of the OH&S guidelines so they are aware of their obligations. Next, we perform a walk through to examine their work processes in order to determine what health surveillance is required in order to keep their employees safe. Once this is identified, we can schedule the appropriate testing. When testing is complete, a final report is issued to our clients with all the results, our methodologies and testing standards, as well as any recommendations we have to improve their program.

To ensure our integrity and professionalism, we follow strict adherence to OH&S, CSA, OSHA, ANSI, AIHA and all other provincial and federal standards.
