Site Needs Assessment

Employers have a duty to reduce (so far as is reasonably practicable) the risks to the health and safety of employees and others who may be affected by work activity. At the beginning of a contract it is sensible for one of our nurses to carry out an onsite needs assessment. A nurse will come to your site and complete a walk around observation with the health and safety manager. These assessments can be done to formalise health surveillance requirements and ensure legal compliance to obtain advice on services to improve employee health.   

Occupational health focuses on the protection and promotion of the health

Following a site assessment we can advise you of your company’s legal occupational health obligations and the exposures experienced by your employees. This will enable us together to develop a robust occupational health programme which is also cost effective for your organisation. 

A suitable health surveillance programme aims to prevent ill health rather than cure it. Occupational health focuses on the protection and promotion of the health of workers by preventing and controlling occupational diseases and accidents. The aim is to eliminate occupational factors and conditions hazardous to health and safety at work. There is a focus to develop and promote healthy and safe work, working environments and organisations. This will enable workers to conduct socially and economically productive lives. (WHO, 1994) 

Please contact a member of the team and we will work with you to help develop an appropriate occupational health programme.
