Occupational health is about the effect of work on health, and the effect of health on work. It plays a vital role in helping employers care for and understand the needs of their employees, enabling businesses to reduce sickness absence levels and optimise staff performance and productivity.

Occupational health is a vital component of HR policy, enabling employers to understand and comply with Health and Safety legislation and to ensure workplace risks are effectively managed. Other areas in which occupational health advice can assist organisations include, rehabilitation and medical intervention programmes, disability adjustments, ill-health retirement issues and the management of existing work-related health problems.

Wellbeing services are designed to promote a holistic approach to the long-term health of employees. Solutions such as health promotion workshops, lifestyle assessments and stress management services create healthy and happy employees and consequently optimal performance levels

Case Study 1


A chemical manufacturer in the North West was concerned about the number of employees potentially exposures to both skin and respiratory sensitisers within their production facility. They wanted to begin a program of health surveillance but were worried about the cost implications.


Following a comprehensive site inspection potential sensitisers were identified and ranked in relation to the hazard they posed. At risk and susceptible employees were identified and access as to their need to participate in routine health surveillance. A programme of first line health questionnaires was devised to identify the early indications of adverse health effects. This was administered by an occupational health nurse and reviewed by an occupational physician.

Resulting Changes

Those employees considered to be susceptible or at a high level of risk were subject to skin inspections and respiratory performance testing on a routine basis.

Case Study 2


A fabrication company in the Midlands required their employees to handle lead on a regular basis. They thought that some form of occupational health surveillance would be required, but where unsure of the duties under the Control of Lead at Work Regulations.


Our team of highly experienced occupational health and occupational hygiene professionals were able to visit the clients site and advise them on the best way forward for both employer and employee.
Personal exposure monitoring was carried out and compared to the lead occupational exposure limit. From these results it was clear that health surveillance in the form of lead in blood monitoring would be required in order to comply with the duties laid down in the Control of Lead at Work Regulations.

Resulting Changes

We were able to coordinate all the required services in a fully integrated lead at work management system.
