What is Occupational Health?

Occupational Health (OH) is concerned with how work and the work environment can affect an employee’s health, and how employee health can affect a person’s ability to do the job.

Assessing Fitness For Work

The primary purpose of health assessment fitness for work is to make sure that an individual is fit to perform the tasks involved effectively and without risk to their own or others’ health and safety. It is not the intention to exclude a person from a job but to make any necessary reasonable modifications or adjustments to the job to allow the person to work efficiently and safely.

Services and Support

Occupational Health provides a range of services to provide specialist advice, guidance and information to managers and employees. This includes reasonable adjustments, health screening (drivers health screen, forklift trucks, stack trucks and cranes; food handlers); health surveillance (hearing and lung-function assessments; hand arm vibration assessments) pre-placement health assessments workplace advice (general; display screen assessments; lifting and handling)

Health Surveillance and Fitness for Work Medicals

What is Health Surveillance


Health surveillance is a system of ongoing health checks, whereby the outcomes are fed back into the risk management loops to review existing control measures. These health checks may be required by law for employees who are exposed to noise or vibration, ionising radiation, solvents, fumes, dusts, biological agents and other substances hazardous to health, or work in compressed air.

We support you to comply with Health and Safety Legislation by working with your business to identify workplace hazards then creating a suitable health surveillance programme that is in line with statutory and industry best practice requirements.
