Occupational Health is the effect of health

Every year, in all industries, approximately 1.5 million workers suffer from ill health caused or made worse by work. And 2.2% of workers received an injury reported to the HSE under RIDDOR during 2002.

The HSE vision of Occupational Health Services:

  • Protect and promote health and well being, creating a healthier/happier workforce
  • Provide early intervention to help reduce absence
  • Proactively manage sickness absence
  • Fulfil the statutory requirement to have access to competent OH advice.

Most safety issues have been assessed and control measures put in place to manage risk, however in many instances our most important assets our employees may not have received as much attention.
