This HR Forum will focus on the best-practice procedures and policies for occupational health which will help business owners, employee representatives, HR professionals, and operations managers provide a healthy work environment which reduces work-related illness and absence. We will discuss the leading causes of work-related illness, stress management, and how to develop an occupational health policy for your company.
