1. What is Occupational Health?

Occupational Health is a specialist branch of medicine concerned with the effects of work upon health, and health upon work. It assists

the employer to fulfil its duty of care in making reasonable adjustments, where possible, and in supporting a safe working environment.


2. What standards of competence are applied to your nurses and physicians?

All our doctors are Consultant Occupational Physicians and hold the highest level of qualification in occupational medicine, i.e.

membership of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians. Our nurses are registered with the Nursing and

Midwifery Council (NMC), and have an in-depth understanding of occupational hazards, risk and industrial disease.


3. What is an Occupational Health Referral?

If you have been absent from work for an extended period or have had frequent short term absence, then your Manager or HR Manager

may refer you to MOH. The purpose of the referral is to provide your employer with clear, impartial and professional advice on matters

relating to your fitness for work. Occupational Health Referrals are undertaken by a qualified Occupational Health Nurse/Physician

(OHN/OHP) which may be telephonic or a face-to-face assessment.


7. What is Health Surveillance?

Health Surveillance is about systematically checking for early signs of work-related ill health in employees exposed to certain health

risks/hazards. It means putting in place certain protocols and procedures to achieve this, including Occupational Health assessments.


8. Who needs a Health Surveillance assessment?

The employer will identify and advise MOH of any areas within the business where Health Surveillance may be required. This could be

due to the employee working with tools which vibrate, a noisy environment, working in a dusty environment or with chemicals etc. There are a number of different areas where Health Surveillance may be required.
