We provide the following services: -
Sickness absence referrals / Fitness for Work assessments
Managing sickness absence is a priority for many organisations. Employees with extended periods of sickness absence and chronic medical conditions / disability will benefit from an occupational health intervention which leads to effective and early rehabilitation back to work and helps with work retention.
OccMed Consultants professional staff can work with an organisation to help ensure employees maintain their health and wellbeing, helping to reduce the development of chronic diseases, identify them at an early stage, helping to reduce sickness absence, presenteeism (being in work when ill) and Leavism (using annual leave when sick).
To ensure newly appointed employees are fit for the role, any adjustments are put in place to accommodate existing disability and to undertake a baseline health assessment / health surveillance to reduce thew impact of future legal claims against an organisation.
Health surveillance / Annual medicals
Health surveillance may include assessments of hearing, the effects of vibration, skin, musculoskeletal and lung function testing. These assessments can be supplemented with annual medicals which can help identify early warning signs and early development of health conditions, enabling interventions to occur.
