The Occupational and Environmental Health Standards
The Occupational and environmental health standards are to set of standards divided for hospitals and other health care facilities developed by the the Executive Board of the GCC Health Ministers in collaboration with The Eastern Mediterranean Regional office of the World Health Organisation, also known as EMRO , according to the ILO/WHO Joint Global Framework for National Occupational Health Programmes for healthcare workers.
The two sets of GCC standards currently in use are:
1- Occupational health (OH) standards in accrediting hospitals and other health care facilities.
Healthcare workers face a number of serious health and safety hazards. Thus, Occupational Health issues relating to the personal safety and protection of workers is a very important concern for hospitals and other health care facilities.
Implementing the GCC OH standards will help to protect the HCWs, furthermore, to meet the requirements for licensing and accreditation of your health care facility.

Environmental Health is the measurement, evaluation and control of factors within our environment that have an effect on the health and well-being of people. Health Care workers have the right to expect that there is an adequate level of control over environmental factors that affect their state of health.
Implementing the GCC EH standards will help to protect HCWs, furthermore, to meet the requirements for licensing and accreditation of your health care facility.
