We are pleased to introduce the brand new Occupational Health News blog. This blog has been in discussion amongst NMS folk for quite some time now but we have finally figured out the information and service that we want to provide to our readers.
The overall goal of this blog is to be a resource to all employers who are in charge of the health of their employees. Employee health means different things to different people. Human Resources, Safety Managers, and Corporate Medical professionals are all appointed the task of keeping their employees healthy but all have different methodology in accomplishing this. In addition, more and more organizations are hiring Wellness Managers, or at the very least, are tasking somebody with the responsibility of improving the health culture of the workplace. With that being said Employee Health means different things to different people.
Whether you are a Safety Manager tasked with providing an OSHA Medical Surveillance program for 10K employees, an HR Manager on-boarding a department full of new hires for medical screenings, an on-site M.D. who is treating a flu outbreak in the accounting department, or a Wellness Manager who needs colleagues to adopt new health initiatives, this blog will be for you.
In the end, all of us are concerned with improving and maintaing the health of our employees, and this blog will aim to assist you with that task.
In the coming days, weeks, and even years, NMS will be adding tons of great content for you to dig your teeth into. We hope to not only provide daily blogs but also free daily resources that can be used and implemented in your day-to-day activities.
We want to make Occupational Health accessible to everyone. OSHA, SAMSHA, DOL, DOT and the regulations that accompany them can be very intimidating - especially if you are the one charged with maintaing compliance. We hope to offer a simple breakdown of this information. In addition, we will provide resources such as free pocket guides, rubrics, health risk assessments, tools, and much more!
We are very excited to roll out some of these things to you and we hope that you can get great use out of them.
Thank you and stay tuned!
