Health Surveillance

A system of health checks for workers or employees may be necessary if they are exposed to certain working conditions.

If these health checks have a requirement to be carried out routinely, they may form part of a health surveillance program carried out by an occupational health provider.


Health Surveillance

If there is a potential risk to employees, employers are asked to identify the need for health surveillance by conducting a risk assessment. If the risk assessment summary results in potential risk that cannot be avoided or have a likelihood to cause short or long-term harm, employers will need organise appropriate health surveillance, which can:

Recommend preventative measures
Help evaluate potential health risks
Detecting ill-health effects at an early stage
