Why use occupational health services?
Occupational Health is a medical specialty that looks at how the work practice can affect the health of individuals and how medical conditions can impact on work performance and attendance. Occupational Health physicians are trained to assess the functional impact of medical conditions on employees as well as hazards and risk in the workplace.
These skills help provide advice to employers on how to support their employees and provide clarity on what health surveillance might be required, employee adjustments to consider, management responsibilities and the likely future impact on the business these may have.
Positive early intervention in sickness absence and performance management can significantly reduce the duration of these. Occupational Health services can provide these assessments to try to minimize the impact on your business and advise regarding support options for your employees that meet your legal responsibilities.
Examples of management situations where occupational health advice can help:
High or recurrent sickness absence
Performance concerns that might relate to medical conditions
Hazards that might affect health in the workplace
