Occupational health is the specialist healthcare that is dedicated to identifying and preventing ill health in the workplace. It ensures your legal compliance and supports you and your employees when health problems occur. Through the appropriate occupational health surveillance it also ensures that an individual does not have a specific medical condition that would be made worse whilst in the working environment.
Progressive legislation from the European Union and Parliament places a duty on employers to protect the Health and Safety of their employees. There is an increasing responsibility for employers to provide health surveillance for employees who are potentially at risk. The employer’s responsibility for Health and Safety is continually widening to include areas such as Stress Management, Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome and Back Pain. The financial benefits to employers of compliance are significant. As an example the overall cost of “back pain” alone to industry is estimated to be £5 billion.
