Ensuring Regulatory Compliance
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations places a legal duty on employers to assess and manage risks to the health and safety of their employees. This includes identifying any potential health hazards or medical conditions that may arise from work activities. Our Healthy Worker Medical Assessment service helps you comply with these regulations by conducting comprehensive assessments to evaluate the overall health status of your employees.
Anyone can benefit from a healthy worker medical assessment, but it is especially recommended for employees who may be at risk of developing health issues due to their work environment or lifestyle factors.
The frequency of testing will depend on the individual’s risk factors, workplace environment, and medical history. Our trained professionals can advise you on the appropriate frequency for your employees.
If a health issue is identified, our professionals will provide advice and recommendations for addressing the issue, including lifestyle changes, further testing, and referrals to other healthcare professionals.
Employers can benefit from offering healthy worker medical assessments by promoting a culture of health and wellbeing in the workplace, which can lead to increased productivity, reduced absenteeism, and a safer work environment. Additionally, identifying potential health risks early on can help employers address them before they become more serious issues that could impact the employee’s ability to work and lead to avoidable costs for the organisation.
Investing in your employees’ health is an investment in the success of your business. Contact us today to learn more about our healthy worker medical assessments and how we can help you promote a culture of health and wellness in your workplace, as well as keep compliant with regulations.
