The International Labor Organization defines it as a ‘system which includes a functional capacity for data collection, analysis and dissemination linked to occupational health programmes.’

Workplace health surveillance also helps in highlighting the security lapses when it comes to employee health and safety and reinforces training and awareness to avoid any kind of health related issues in the workplace.
