Occupational Health

Was traditionally safety’s poor relation, and it was only ever considered by the ‘best blue chip’ organisations. COVID has changed this and shown that occupational health is relevant to all organisations regardless of their size or sector. It often touches upon:

  • Compliance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and particularly the COSHH, REACH and CLP regulations.
  • Managing workplace fumes, dusts, odours and other air borne contaminants.
  • The identification, management and control of asbestos and silica.
  • Confidential workforce occupational health questionnaires.
  • Driving at work – in line with HSE guidance.
  • Work Related Stress – in line with HSE guidance.
  • Hours of work and the (European) Working Time Directive.
  • Computer workstation assessments – in line with Regulations.
  • Selection of PPE and other work clothing.
  • Workplace noise and vibration – and their control as outlined in regulations.
  • Hygiene standards and welfare facilities.
  • Providing information about the way lifestyle (food, exercise, and pastimes) behaviours impact upon personal health.
  • Potentially providing on site showers and ride to work schemes.
  • Providing healthy food options in canteens and break out areas.
  • Requisite workforce, consultation, information and training.
