Occupational and Environmental Health Nursing

Occupational and environmental health nursing is the specialty practice that provides for and delivers health and safety programs and services to workers, worker populations, and community groups. The practice focuses on promotion and restoration of health, prevention of illness and injury, and protection from work-related and environmental hazards. Occupational and environmental health nurses (OHNs) have a combined knowledge of health and business that they blend with healthcare expertise to balance the requirement for a safe and healthful work environment with a “healthy” bottom line.

Occupational health nursing services could be a wide established field, the bulk of services area unit still preponderantly composed of activity health nurses and physicians with alternative specialists utilized in smaller numbers or on a part time basis. In some countries occupational health services and safety services within the same enterprise are not combined. However, the modern approach to workplace health management requires close cooperation and collaboration between all of the experts, company management and employees .Increasingly commercial organizations have also recognized the economic, social and health benefits achieved by providing protective and preventive services at the workplace and have, even where no legal requirement exists, developed their own in house services to address these problems.

With businesses facing staggering employee healthcare costs, OHNs work as management partners who develop and implement programs and services that help increase workforce productivity, decrease job-related injuries, reduce disability claims—and overall, improve the bottom line. These programs focus on:

  • Occupational Health and Safety
  • Employee physical examinations
  • Disaster planning and safety
  • Immunization
  • Weight reduction and nutritional counselling
  • Stress management
  • Smoking cessation
  • Occupational health nurse practice in Community Field
  • Occupational health nurse practice in Industrial field
  • Chronic disease management
