STATUTORY HEALTH SURVEILLANCE – health surveillance is about systematic, regular checks on workers to identify early signs of ill health, AND TO ACT ON THE RESULTS!
Who needs health surveillance?
Health surveillance is needed to protect workers who are at increased risk, identify work related ill health at an early stage so that steps can be taken to treat the condition and prevent further damage. In addition, to determine whether or not control measures are effective.
Health surveillance does not reduce the need to eliminate or manage health risks. Formal health surveillance is only necessary if work damages health in a particular way and the following factors apply: there is valid way to detect a disease or condition and it is reasonably likely that damage to health will occur under the particular conditions at work, and health surveillance is likely to benefit the employee.
Statutory Health Surveillance is required under the following legislation:
- Control of Noise at Work Regulations
- COSHH Regulations
- Control of Vibration at Work Regulations
Safety Critical Worker Health Assessment
“Safety Critical Work – Where the health of an individual may compromise their ability to undertake a task defined as safety critical, thereby posing a significant risk to their health and that of other workers” CBH (2008)
A range of jobs are defined as Safety Critical including:
- Confined Space Work
- Work at heights
- Plant Operations
- Work on high speed road networks
- Others, identified by risk assessment
For many companies, the most cost effective Occupational Health service is delivered on–site
Seeing people at their workplace allows us to develop good communication with managers and employees, as well as ensuring consistency and continuity. Downtime can be reduced and employees can travel to one site to be seen.
On- site services allow us to deliver a wide range of risk based flexible services, and to provide advice to HR and Safety Advisors.
