Occupational health assessments, also known as workplace medical assessments, keep your workforce healthy and help a business comply with health and safety at work regulations. They are normally required for safety critical industries such as Network Rail and construction. However, occupational health assessments are now becoming more popular in service based industries, as part of employee benefit packages.
Performing occupational health assessments for relevant employees ensures that you are in compliance with health and safety regulations. They are crucial for personnel who perform safety critical tasks in high-risk areas. Furthermore, they are a mandatory requirement in industries such as utilities, construction and rail. For example, for the rail industry, we provide Network Rail PTS medical assessments under the RISQS Scheme. So in this case, it is important that the occupational health assessment performed, complies with the competence specific medical fitness requirements for Network Rail.
In addition, the general health of employees is also important. Occupational health assessments can also help ensure that standards are in place for the workforce in terms of fitness to work. In turn, this can reduce the risk of a work-related illness or injury, and increase productivity. Finally, the general health and fitness of employees has many personal benefits outside of work too, leading to an active and happy lifestyle.

Many are industry specific and performed at nationwide medical centres, local clinics, or onsite at your location.
