There are many medical examinations required in industry to satisfy Legal Requirements, enforced by the Health and Safety Executive, or to comply with COSSH requirements, or down to basics, sorting out sickness absence.
The more common surveillances are :
- Hearing Surveillance
- Hand Arm Vibratio
- Lung Surveillance
- Skin Surveillance
- VDU Assessment
- Night Worker Assessment (DTT)
- Fork Lift Truck Assessment
- Urine Analysis for drug and diabetes testing
- Pre-employment screening
We will tailor our services to your requirements and design a health surveillance package specifically for you. We will advise you to value and protect one of your companies most important assets – your employees. Looking after the health of your employees will contribute to the successfulness of your business. A good attitude towards occupational health will benefit your business by:
- Lower employee absence through sickness
- Reduce insurance premiums
- Reduce health related claims
- Reduce operating costs
- Increase productivity
- Improve employee relations
- Improve company image
Health Matters believe it falls under our remit to analyse industries that we provide health surveillance to, to get a firm understanding of the hazards you may encounter. Once we clarify with yourselves which surveillance functions you require, we will arrange a convenient appointment to come and perform the surveillance. We endeavour to perform the surveillance, with as little problems to your flow of work as possible, although if we have concerns with an employee and need to fact find further, we hope you appreciate the delay is on your behalf. Once surveillance is complete, we take the results back to our office, where they are compiled into a format you can respond to, with clear indication of passes and fails. All our work both onsite and internally is performed in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
