We understand that for an employer it is a real challenge to fully understand the complex issue of what is a best in class modern Occupational Health service. Then, selecting an appropriate Occupational Health service provider who will provide you with the service you need from the myriad of providers in the market adds an extra element of uncertainty.
Occupational Health is a specialist branch of medicine focussing on health in the workplace, concerned with the physical and mental well-being of employees. The service must be able to support organisations providing good advice on work related illnesses and accidents, managing referred absence cases, carrying out effective pre-employment assessments and monitoring the health of employees.
Additionally, it is a requirement under health and safety legislation for employers to protect employees against potential workplace hazards. In addition to this requirement, several individual pieces of employment and health and safety legislation make it clear that specific interventions by medical personnel are required.
- Control of substances hazardous to health
- Management of health and safety at work regulations
- Manual handling regulations
- DSE regulations
The service must be able to provide a full range of services to support these obligations, such as safety critical assessments, audiometry, respiratory surveillance, Havs, skin surveillance etc.
