Improve your employees' health with these three tips

 
You need to be aware of the health risks involved in your workplace. You must deal with anything that can make your employees sick at work. 
 
To help you do this, we suggest you:
 
Tip 1: Do a health risk assessment. Here you need to look out for any harmful substances that can make your employees ill. And look out for situations where they'd be exposed to bacteria.
 
You must remember that even if you can't see these health risks, they're still there, so you need to do careful a risk analysis. 
 
Tip 2: Give your employees OHS training on health issues. These can be anything from basic hygiene tips to how to clean up after working with a dangerous substance. 
 
It's important that your employees understand how to protect themselves from illnesses too.
