occupational health


Occupational health is about the effect of work on health and about making sure that workers are fit for the work that they do. It’s about prevention rather than cure, and about rehabilitating workers after illness.

The paper industry, through various PABIAC initiatives, has made real progress in reducing the number of accidents at work and resulting absence from work.

However, the HSE estimate that 40 million working days are lost each year to occupational ill health and injury. This obviously has a major impact on productivity and the personal suffering of the employees concerned.
