Occupational Health Surveillance focuses on the physical and mental wellbeing of the employees. It helps in the identification of workers health status owing to determinants such as risk factors at the workplace leading to cancers, respiratory diseases, hearing loss, stress related disorders and others. It encompasses the social, mental and physical wellbeing of the employees. Work - related injuries or illness can have many serious direct and indirect effects on the lives of workers and their families. Some of them are: the pain and suffering of the injury or illness; the loss of income and health-care costs. Not only the employees, it also affects the employers and the wider economy – owing to the losses from early retirements, staff absence and rising insurance premiums.
