Occupational Healthcare

Occupational healthcare is a service that assists a company’s staff members to ensure that their relevant place of work is safe and healthy in accordance to the law. Using occupational healthcare services allows for professionals to come in and review working conditions in corporations, advising staff and employers of changes that may be required to comply withHealth and Safety laws.

Occupational healthcare assessments include the analysis of various health hazards found within the workplace. This assessment includes the surveillance of various factors within the working environment as well as working practises which can affect an employee’s health negatively. A systematic approach is used to analyse possible occupational accidents and or occupational diseases that can range from mild to serious based on the relevant working environment.

Occupational healthcare services can also include the organisation and planning out of a working environment prior to the development of it. This would include the correct placement of equipment and substances that will be used in the everyday working environment to minimize overall health risks to employees.
