On-Site Health Surveillance

What is Health Surveillance ?

“Health surveillance is putting in place systematic, regular and appropriate procedures to detect early signs of work related ill health and then acting upon the results. The aim is to identify and protect workers at increased risk and to check the long term effectiveness of measures to control risks to health. Employers are obliged to ensure that appropriate health surveillance is made available to employees for whom a risk assessment reveals a risk to their health.” – HSA 2007

Health Surveillance is a part of your company’s health and safety management plan

Your site safety statement will list the priority health hazards in the workplace

A risk assessment will document a careful examination of the risk and what can be done to prevent harm from the hazard.

Health Surveillance is a measure of effectiveness of your company’s hazard control plan.

Health Surveillance is an on-going process, medical exams are repeated on a multi year basis, and the results analysed for trends. A medwise specialist occupational health physician will review the health surveillance exam results and recommend action for abnormal results.

At the end of the on-site testing phase we will deliver test certificates, a tracker file of all employees tested, a summary report that extracts key information from the test data that will support you in verifying if workplace hazards are impacting the health of your workforce.
