What can we help you do for your people?
As an organisation, you have a number of responsibilities under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, and its related regulations. One of the duties is to ensure the health, safety and welfare at work of employees. This should not be limited to physical safety and prevention of injury at work but also consider the impact of work on physical and mental health as well as the impact of ill health on the ability to work.
Occupational Health Services can support this legal requirement by providing advice on employment of employees with health problems, and delivering health surveillance programmes as required by the Management Regulations. In addition, occupational health services can provide support to health promotion and improvement activities within an organisation, as well as education and training relating to different aspects of health and work. Such activities can promote a healthier workplace tailored to the health, safety and welfare of the employees and resulting in better productivity for an organisation.
