Environmental health and safety creates the physical work environment which encompasses the promotion and maintenance of the physical, mental and social well-being of employees or workers in the organization. It includes reducing work-related injury, illness and disability by addressing the harmful hazards and risks of the physical environment. Reducing physical job hazards may also reduce work related stress in employees in workplace. Internationally recognized expert proved that occupational health says that three most pressing issues facing OHNs today are an aging, chronic disease management, mental health and other healthcare related professionals being placed in their roles.
Bio medical waste is the Waste generated by health care activities includes a broad range of materials, from used needles and syringes to soiled dressings, body parts, diagnostic samples, blood, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and radioactive materials. Biomedical waste may also include waste associated with the generation of biomedical waste that visually appears to be of medical or laboratory origin such as packaging, unused bandages, infusion kits, etc. as well research laboratory waste containing bio molecules or organisms that are restricted from environmental release. Biomedical waste is generated from biological and medical sources and activities, such as the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of diseases.
Environmental health hazards may be biological, chemical, physical, biomechanical or psychosocial in nature. Environmental health hazards include traditional hazards of poor sanitation and shelter, as well as agricultural and industrial contamination of air, water, food and land. Environmental health risks result from people interacting with hazards in the surrounding environment. In order to prevent environmental health hazards affecting our health, it is very important to be aware of the hazards and to take steps to manage the risks. Some majorly deals with general environmental health hazards, and not extremes of climate, occupational hazards, chemical hazards, physical hazards and hazards associated with food also may be the reason.
Environmental health and toxicology mainly focuses on the exposure of organisms to toxic agents, as well as examination of the molecular and physiological processes that are impacted by these exposures like heavy metals, toxic elements, organic chemicals, pesticides etc. Environmental Toxicology is a rapidly developing field concerned with the research of natural and man-made pollutants which impact the health of humans, wildlife, and whole ecosystems. It involves application of a variety of techniques to study the impact of toxic substances or agents on living organisms and provides powerful tools for assessing the risks associated with the presence of these agents.
Global Environmental Health and balanced natural systems are essential for supporting life on this planet. Healthy and balanced natural systems are essential for supporting life on this planet. Healthy environment is a part of wealth and quality of life with the determinants of health which we desire for ourselves now and for our children in the future. Being humans we have prior responsibility to preserve the actual value of nature both for ourselves and for future generations. In the environment many things can affect our health like ozone depletion, climate change, UV radiation. Unexpectedly, planet is suffering due to many environmental problems that may affect people, societies, and ecosystems. Major Environmental Health problems mainly facing today are deforestation, global warming, disasters and water pollution.
Non communicable diseases refer to a group of conditions that are not mainly caused by an acute infection, but result in long-term health consequences and often create a need for long-term treatment and care. These conditions include cancers, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and chronic lung illnesses. Some non-communicable diseases are cancer, obesity, hypertension, injuries, mental illness and respiratory diseases. Environmental health mainly discusses about the ecological perspectives. More poverty, lack of investment in modern technology and weak environmental legislation combine to cause high pollution levels. Associations between environmental pollution and health outcome are however complex and often poorly characterized. Exposures may occur via a range of pathways and exposure processes.
Environmental engineering deals with the combination of sciences and engineering principles to improve the natural environment, to provide healthy water, air, and land for human habitation and for other organisms, and to clean up pollution sites.
