SURVEILLANCE MEDICALS

For a lot of situations at work regular medical examinations are legally required. After a carefully conducted risk assessment the decision will be made on meeting the action levels triggering surveillance medicals.

The most common risks at work are:

  • Noise surveillance
  • Hand arm vibration surveillance
  • Computer work
  • Night-worker surveillance
  • Food handler assessment
  • Skin surveillance
  • Lung surveillance
  • Lead
  • Asbestos
  • Ionising Radiation

The HSE requests regular surveillance medicals when Workplace Exposure Limits are reached.

The Working Time Regulations require the employer to offer their employees a medical assessment before starting on regular night work and then in regular intervals. The employee has the right to decline the employers offer and miss out on early detection of possible health problems frequently related or worsened by night work.
We offer paper based as well as interactive online night worker assessments.

 

There is a wide variety of tasks which can be potentially dangerous for employees, colleagues or the public. Some of this risk can relate to medical conditions which affect fitness to perform these tasks safely. By conducting periodic medical examinations you can identify relevant problems and reduce this risk, thereby demonstrating due care to employees, colleagues and the public.

Periodic medical screening tests are commonly performed for

  • FTL
  • HGV
  • PSV
  • Individual designed medicals
  • Stress medical
  • Age medical
  • Manual handling medical
  • Combined mental and physical stress
  • Cardio-vascular risk medical

If you have employees operating dangerous equipment or working in high risk environments, we can design a periodic medical screening programme in your workplace.
