Occupational Health Questionnaires.
The continuous refinement of an occupational health strategy is a must for all businesses. And there’s no better way of identifying ways to improve than listening to your employees. Our questionnaires enable you to do just that. Cost-effective with flexible options, they’re specifically designed to support your duty of care as an employer.
Online Occupational Health Questionnaire
Once someone has been offered an employment contract, the employer is within their rights to ask about any health issues to determine whether any adjustments are required in the workplace. The employee doesn't have to complete the questionnaire but in our experience this is the best time to determine whether the employer needs to be aware of any health problems.
Employees working after 11pm and before 6am should be offered a Night Worker Health Questionnaire every year to allow the employer to determine whether night work is impacting on the employee's health.
Display System Equipment (DSE)
Employees working with DSE have a statutory right to be offered a DSE assessment every year.
Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS)
HAVS is a key area for claims against employers and there are statutory requirements for HAVS reviews to be conducted for employees who are exposed to vibrating machinery.
Working at Heights
Helping employers meet their duty of care by ensuring their employees are medically fit to operate at heights in their working environment, reducing potential risks.
Musculoskeletal injuries are one of the leading reasons for absence in the UK. This questionnaire allows employers to conduct a risk review for employees who have musculoskeletal problems or who are exposed to musculoskeletal risks.
Once an employer has been advised that an employee is expecting a baby the employer should conduct a risk assessment to ensure the workplace is not putting the mother or baby at risk.
On-site Risk Surveillance.
Helping you minimise any risks to the health and wellbeing of your workforce. Our on-site risk assessments are tailored to the specific needs and activities of your business. Armed with the latest mobile health equipment, our occupational health professionals visit your workplaces and fully assess the health of your employees and any risks they may face at work.
On-site Risk Assessments
Eyesight Tests to Occupational Health Standard
Conducted using an eyesight chart – this is to test whether the employee's eyesight is putting themselves or others at risk.
Peripheral Eyesight and Colour Blindness Tests
Conducted using colour blindness charts to ensure the employee is not putting themselves and others at risk – particularly whilst driving.
Conducted using hearing test software and noise cancelling headphones. This test provides hearing results taking age into account.
Lung Function Tests
Respiratory test using a digital spirometer to provide precise lung function results.
Review of the skin, usually on the arms and legs, to consider whether the employee is having a reaction to something within the workplace.
Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS)
Review of the fingers looking for signs of 'white finger’.
Review carried out with the employee to consider whether they have any musculoskeletal issues and if they could have been caused by the existing or previous workplaces.
Blood Pressure Test
We believe that all employees should be offered a blood pressure test because it's one of the key health indicators (however this is not an occupational health test).
Review of the medication the employee might be taking in order to consider whether the medication might be causing unwanted side effects e.g. drowsiness at work.
Urinalysis for Protein, Glucose & Blood (optional)
Employees working at height should be offered a test for protein, glucose and blood to determine whether they are vulnerable to epilepsy or diabetes.
Occupational Health Questionnaire
This forms part of the results process and is completed during the assessment by the practitioner.
Objective advice for both the employer and employee on issues such as absence management, work-related health conditions or Equality Act matters. Following a phone or video conversation with the employee, our OH Clinician will provide a full report to assist with the return-to-work process.
Early intervention can result in employees being fit to return to work sooner, making the transition back into the workplace less stressful for employees and more productive for employers. As a matter of priority, our OH Clinician collaborates with the employer to establish if it’s workplace stress or related to other factors such as the employee’s mental health.
