Why is Workplace Health Surveillance Needed?

  • Support risk assessments (particularly when working with COSHH).
  • Monitoring an employees health throughout their tenure at the company through health surveillance screening will help identify any potential deterioration in health and risks early
  • Ensuring exposure to working environments (e.g. Noise, dust etc) is not having harmful or detrimental effect on employee’s health
  • Detecting any reduction in employee health early helps prevent it getting worse
  • Enables control measures to be put in place (e.g. Face-fitted masks)
  • Highlights failures in workplace health measures (e.g. Extraction or protocols)
  • Highlights areas that require additional training or educatio

What to Expect during the medical?

Skin Surveillance

Occupational health skin disease can cause irreversible damage if not detected early enough.

Irritants caused by working conditions such as latex gloves, soaps/cleaning products, chemicals & solvents, resins & oils, amongst others may cause skin damage.

Common Occupations associated with skin disease include construction, paint spraying, food manufacturing, catering, healthcare and agriculture.

Audiometry (Hearing)

Audiometry is the testing of hearing, and is required under the Control of Noise at Work Regulations, 2005. This applies to those workers who are regularly exposed to noise over the 85 dB, and also to those with reduced exposure but a higher/increased sensitivity to noise.

Spirometry (Lung Function)

A New Starter Declaration is an electronic questionnaire completed by the employee once they have been offered their new position. This is a vital part of a company’s occupational health processes, as it not only demonstrates an early commitment to the employee health, but also captures the employee’s health status at the start point, and any potential or current issues can be raised and supported early.

Spirometry detects the early indications of lung damage and respiratory diseases, and is carried out in order to comply with COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations, 2002).

Using chemicals or other hazardous substances at work if not managed properly can be dangerous to an employee’s health, so the law requires employers to control and measure exposure to prevent ill health occurring.

Musculoskeletal (MSK)

Musculoskeletal problems can develop gradually over time, and may occur from a range of various activities.

Disorders such as bad back, stiff neck or shoulders and pain in knees are all preventable issues at work.

In 2020/21 there were an estimated 470,000 workers affected by work-related musculoskeletal disorders – This accounts for 28% of all work-related ill health.

Vision Assessment

As occupational health surveillance providers we can provide eyesight assessment and screening and refer your employees to an optician of your choice. We offer on-site vision screening/sight testing to employees whose eyesight is a necessity for their safety whilst working.

We will:

  • Provide you professional and competent advice on the duties you as an employer
  • Advise you on who will require eyesight testing
  • Undertake eyesight tests using the appropriate equipment and in line with guidance
  • Arrange to follow up and repeat any assessments as required

Your organisation is required, by health and safety regulations, to provide eye and eyesight tests on request for all VDU users. In addition, your organisation must also provide corrective spectacles where necessary.

Blood Lead Testing

Employers have a legal obligation to provide employee health surveillance for those who have regular exposure to lead (even if control measures are in place), as lead can be absorbed either when breathing or swallowing.

This is know as CLAW medical – (Control of Lead at Work Regulations 2002), and protects against serious health problems developing such as anaemia, kidney disease and cancers.

Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS)

Employers have a legal obligation to provide employee health surveillance for those who have regular exposure to lead (even if control measures are in place), as lead can be absorbed either when breathing or swallowing.
