The health and wellbeing of staff is important for every workplace and the services of an Occupational Health provider can support with this. They offer a variety of services, such as:
- pre-employment checks - these are pre-employment health questionnaires with supporting advice on fitness for the role
- health monitoring - which can include routine medical checks for early detection of work-related ill health
- sickness absence management - which helps support staff back into work, thereby reducing sickness absence. Sickness absence management will include occupational health referrals and assessments of fitness for work and rehabilitation programmes
As we do not offer an Occupational Health service to schools, it is recommended that schools arrange to provide this.
