Your workers’ health is important. Monitoring can be used to effectively manage health risks to your workers that arise from your work.

Working in hazardous conditions can adversely affect workers’ health – in both the short (acute) and long term (chronic).

You must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of workers, and that other people are not put at risk by your work. In some circumstances, this could mean monitoring worker exposure and/or the health of workers.
