Comply with HSE and Industry Regulations
We can help you comply with health & safety legislation and, as we work across a diverse industry base, can provide the necessary health assessments and surveillance required to meet industrial standards for many sectors.
The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) set standards and regulations for the required health screening and surveillance of employees. All workplaces in the UK must comply with legislation (underpinning health surveillance), and if there are known hazards or risks in your business these must be addressed by adhering to these regulations.
As part of our Health Needs Assessment service, our Clinical Governance Team will assesses your occupational health provision, processes and procedures to bench mark against all relevant legislation and best practices initiatives.
Areas for compliance include:
Keeping regular checks on employee health, via pre-placement and periodic medicals, is a key requirement in certain safety critical industries and ensures compliance with the Equality Act 2010.
Occupational hygiene uses experienced professionals who determine the potential for hazard and exposure risks in the workplace, giving you the means to develop a relevant health surveillance programme.
Health surveillance is having a system in place within the working environment to look for the early signs of ill health caused by hazards at work. This helps to address the impact of the working environment before it becomes a serious, and potentially expensive, health problem.
Typical surveillance areas include HAVs, Noise at Work, Night Workers, Working at Height, Lead Level Testing, assessments under COSHH 2002, and lift truck operators.
Other examples of surveillance are those associated with risk assessment – lone workers, DSE assessments, pregnant workers.
Whilst at work, it is possible that workers may be exposed to contaminated or infectious environments.
Our vaccination programmes can minimise the risk of employees contracting a range of illnesses caused by exposure to hazards at work.
