Occupational risk management toolbox (Control banding)
People worldwide face occupational health and safety hazards daily. Over the years, the global occupational hygiene community has worked diligently to develop ways to protect workers in both developed and developing nations, in workplaces of all types and sizes. The greatest challenge has been to develop occupational health programs that are feasible in developing nations, as well as in small and medium enterprises (SMEs) where resources and technical expertise may be scarce.
The Occupational Risk Management Toolbox (Toolbox), has been developed internationally and provides a creative solution to this difficult problem. The Toolbox is envisioned to contain a variety of Toolkits, which are semi-quantitative risk management tools; each designed to address a specific occupational hazard.
