Occupational health is concerned with the physical and mental wellbeing of employees in the workplace.
It’s purpose? To eliminate work-related illness and injury.
No workplace is entirely free of risk. But you can reduce the likelihood of physical accidents, poor health and boost wellbeing by:
- Implementing and promoting safe working practices.
- Effectively managing hazardous substances.
- Monitoring the health of your workforce.
- Effectively managing sickness absence.
- Reviewing policies and procedures.
That’s a lot of responsibility to take on. And, even if you monitor and review successfully, it might not be obvious what the best solution is. That’s where our health & safety consultants come in.
What do our occupational health experts do?

If you have concerns and aren’t sure where to start. Our consultants can identify if you have any deficiencies in your occupational health & safety requirements.
What is an occupational health check?
A lot of different elements go into an occupational health check. Our experts will carry out a full, on-site compliance review of your current safety arrangements.
Once that’s done, they’ll provide you with pragmatic advice and recommend actions. After a small period of time, a second on-site visit will be arranged.
Then they’ll reassess and present you with a summary of their findings, including a full occupational health & safety action plan.
