What is Occupational Health

Occupational health is a field of healthcare involving multiple fields dedicated to the well-being and safety of employees in the workplace, with a strong focus on injury prevention and education. Some occupational health services include employee wellness, Pre-placement services, ergonomics, occupational therapy, and occupational medicine.

Occupational health refers to the identification and control of the risks arising from physical, chemical, and other workplace hazards in order to establish and maintain a safe and healthy working environment. These hazards may include chemical agents and solvents, heavy metals such as lead and mercury, physical agents such as loud noise or vibration, and physical hazards such as electricity or dangerous machinery.

Since 1986, the NIEHS has supported training and education programs designed to protect workers and their communities from exposure to toxic materials encountered during hazardous waste operations and chemical emergency response. This includes safety and health training for workers who are involved in hazardous waste removal and comprehensive training and environmental restoration for residents living near heavily polluted industrial waste sites.

Local Area Info: Askov, Minnesota

The location of the village was originally within the lands of the village of Partridge, at a stop far outside the original village along Great Northern Railway; here a post office was set up, first called Partridge from 18891909, before changing its name to Askov in 1909. Most of the original village of Partridge was destroyed in the 1894 Hinckley fire. The immigrants to the Danish 'colony' of Askov were nationalistic Lutheran followers of the theologian and cultural leader, Bishop N. F. S. Grundtvig, romanticising the superiority of Danish culture and emphasising the importance of speech and education (a motto was "enlightenment must be our delight). Danish immigrants had up till this point been mostly economic migrants fleeing poverty in Denmark, but the first migrants to Askov were almost all Grundvigian Danes from elsewhere in the USA. The Dansk Folkesamfund (Danish Peoples Society) was founded in 1887 by Svend Hersleb Grundtvig, the son of N. F. S. Grundtvig, to conserve Danish social heritage and promote immigration to the USA. The Dansk Folkesamfund, with help from the railroad company, bought the parcels of land around the train station and post office in 1906 and by 1909 had sold the 45 plots exclusively to Danish settlers, some 25 families. The name "Askov" was chosen to commemorate the larger village of Askov in Denmark which is the site of one of the largest folk high schools (Askov Hjskole) founded by N. F. S. Grundtvig, although it is claimed the name is derived from 'ash wood' (ask holt in Danish). By 1916 almost a thousand settlers of Danish descent lived here, although 1920 USA census data records only 242 inhabitants in Askov and most people lived in the village of Partridge -this was thus the largest concentration of Danish settlers in Minnesota. The new village was incorporated on April 25, 1918, and officially separated from the township as the City of Askov on April 8, 1921. Initially the main economic activity was dairy (the first cooperative creamery being built in 1910) supplemented by mixed intensive farming. Nearly all the streets in Askov have been given Danish names.

As of the census of 2010, there were 364 people, 171 households, and 88 families residing in the village. The population density was 288.9 inhabitants per square mile (111.5/km2). There were 188 housing units at an average density of 149.2 per square mile (57.6/km2). The racial makeup of the village was 97.3% White, 0.3% Native American, 0.3% Asian, and 2.2% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 1.4% of the population.

There were 171 households of which 24.0% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 36.8% were married couples living together, 8.8% had a female householder with no husband present, 5.8% had a male householder with no wife present, and 48.5% were non-families. 41.5% of all households were made up of individuals and 21.7% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.13 and the average family size was 2.88.
