Occupational Health is traditionally a service provided by healthcare professionals to assess and treat employees who:
Have been unable to attend work because of an illness
Have been restricted in their duties because of an illness
Have been or are likely to be affected by the work environment
Occupational Health can also include health promotion, risk assessment as well as addressing a range of lifestyle issues such as fitness, stress management, nutrition and dependency.
All organisations have a legal duty towards employees, which can be seen as a hindrance to an organisations development. However, Health & Safety not only ensures the Health & Wellbeing of an organisation's employees it also benefits the business in that it keeps employees active, happy and productive.
Occupational Health is not a legal requirement but should be a necessity to any developing business, ensuring:
Future employees are able to undertake a position in the company
Current employees have direct access to specially trained Occupational Healthcare Professionals
