What is Occupational Health?

Occupational health services ensure employees are fit and healthy to perform at their best. It involves assessing their suitability to work and understanding the necessary precautions to keep them safe and prevent future illnesses.

By conducting consultations and risk assessments, you can gain a broader understanding of your employees’ health and can cater to them accordingly.

Why Is It Crucial?

When employees are ill, it costs them and their employers money, so occupational health assessments are in the interests of both parties. It ensures businesses have a productive workforce and employees can continue to earn their wages.

What We Offer

We are proud to provide a comprehensive service that covers every aspect of occupational health. Our GPs offer expert advice to cater to various needs and industries and ensure that health does not impede your employees’ performance. Our range of assessments includes:

Sickness absence is an unfortunate reality, but it can cost your business due to the loss of an essential, skilled worker. With our medical assessments, we can protect workers’ health and save you money by reducing long-term and repeated short-term sickness absences. 

Many businesses require a doctor’s note for prolonged periods of sick leave. But we do far more than just sign slips. We work with employees and their managers to create safe, proactive plans to help them return to work and avoid future illnesses.

When constructing a safe, efficient working environment, you must determine whether your employees are fit to carry out the necessary tasks. We provide comprehensive pre-placement medical screening to ensure that your team members are fit and healthy before they begin performing their daily roles and highlight required adjustments to reduce accidents or illness. 

To conduct these screenings at a suitable time, we offer the option of online or face-to-face consultations. Plus, we can integrate health surveillance tests into the medical screening if necessary and provide any recalls required for each test.

Our team regularly conducts fit-for-work medicals for specific jobs to assess your employees' individual risks and needs. From there, we explain the hazards and suitable precautions to ensure every employee’s safety. 

Amongst many other essential elements of health and well-being, we consider physical or mental capacities, sensory acuity and skill level. We produce detailed reports, grading each employee with one of three conditions:

  • Fit
  • Unfit
  • Fit, subject to work modifications

We are immensely proud to partner with the well-renowned online pharmacy provider, Cloud Rx to deliver your digital prescriptions directly to your address. With this efficient, next-day service, you can be sure you will receive the medicine quickly. There is no need for paper prescriptions or travelling to multiple pharmacies to find your medicine.

Occupational Therapy

If you or your employees face high-stress levels at work or feel your mental health suffers in your occupation, we have therapists available to help. Our occupational therapy service includes a full mental health assessment and expert Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to equip you with all the skills required to keep working. 

Asbestos Medicals

Working with asbestos poses considerable health hazards, and depending on the level of risk involved, requires a proof-of-medical certificate every two to three years. Our team of experienced GPs offers comprehensive asbestos medical assessments, conveniently scheduled without any waiting periods. By ensuring your health is regularly evaluated, we enable you to work securely and prevent any potential asbestos-related illnesses.

Lead Blood Level Tests

We offer Lead Blood Level tests, a vital screening tool to assess lead exposure in the body. This test measures lead concentration in the blood, helping identify potential lead poisoning or excessive lead levels. A dangerous level of lead in the blood for adults is typically considered to be 5+ micrograms per decilitre (µg/dL). Workers who handle or are exposed to lead in their occupational environment are particularly vulnerable to this type of poisoning. Early detection and monitoring of lead exposure are essential, by allowing for prompt intervention to help prevent long-term complications associated with lead toxicity. Our testing service provides accurate and timely results, allowing workers to take proactive measures to mitigate risks and maintain their well-being.

Occupational health refers to people’s health and well-being concerning their profession. It is essential to ensure that workers are fit to carry out their responsibilities.

Unfortunately, yes. If a doctor believes you are unfit for the requirements of a particular role, they can fail you to protect your health. However, we may provide a ‘fit, subject to work modifications’ verdict, which means you can perform a task if your employer puts precautions in place to facilitate you.

Sickness, mental health and stress-related issues and unsafe working practices can all negatively impact occupational health.

You can self-refer for an occupational health assessment, but we recommend you discuss it with your manager as they may have protocols that allow you to access private care quickly for free.

Typically, your employer refers you for an occupational health assessment with their health care provider. This referral may assess your suitability for a new role or help prevent future illnesses.

During an occupational health assessment, you discuss your medical history with a GP. Then, you will discuss the responsibilities of your job and how they could impact your health, identifying any potential obstacles.

To protect your health, you should not withhold any information from the medical professional conducting your assessment. After all, they are determining whether the responsibilities will negatively affect you and need as much information as possible to do so.

We have translators available for your appointment.
