If risks are not managed appropriately and sensitive monitoring is not in place, then a working environment may directly impact on an employees’ health. Organisations must ensure the health and wellbeing of their staff while they undertake their day-to-day duties.
Health surveillance and monitoring is recommended to keep employees safe, and at the same time to meet the regulatory requirements, such as the ‘Health and Safety at Work’ legislation. Often times, there may be safety-critical aspects to the job roles and it’s critical to ensure each employee is fit to undertake the tasks required.
MAXIMUS professionals provide a tailored, logical, balanced, risk assessment based programme to monitor your employees’ health. Health surveillance and fitness assessments should only be introduced where the risk assessment indicates that they are required or meet the criteria listed in Regulations or associated Approved Codes of Practice.
Consideration should be given to employees at risk from noise, hand-arm vibration, solvents, fumes, dusts, biological agents and other substances hazardous to health. Workers involved with asbestos, lead, work with compressed air, ionising radiations or diving will require medical assessments under specific regulations too.
Our standard approach ensures appropriate procedures to detect early signs of work-related ill health among employees exposed to certain health risks and to act on the results.
