Occupational health is the specialist healthcare that is dedicated to identifying and preventing ill health in the workplace. Appropriate health surveillance ensures that an individual does not develop a specific medical condition related and attributed to their working environment. It ensures your legal compliance and supports you and your employees when health problems occur.
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. Acorn specialise in Occupational Health Cheshire.

Organisations that achieved their absence targets were significantly more likely to manage absence through promoting Occupational Health & Safety, health and well-being than those that did not achieve their targets.
