Occupational Health Risk Assessment
Accredited external suppliers will carry out the Occupational Hygiene survey. A medical surveillance programme will then be developed and implemented based upon identified risks – these could include physical, biological, chemical, psychosocial and ergonomical risks.

Health Evaluations
These are carried out to determine the employee’s health status in terms of their job specifications. Pre-employment examinations determine correct placement of workers according to their physical and mental compatibility. Exit examinations record the health status of employees on termination of service in order to prevent subsequent litigation. This includes a full assessment based on medical history.
