Health surveillance is the process of monitoring and protecting the health of employees exposed to specific risks at work.
Assess an individual to ensure they are fit to complete a specific task or partake in a safety-critical role, be that on-site or on a rail track.
Individual assessments to enable an employee to safely return to work following absence or provide advice on an employee’s ability to remain in work.
The primary purpose of health screening is to detect early infection or hazards among otherwise healthy individuals.
