Some health and safety regulations require employers to provide health surveillance for their employees.
What is health surveillance?
Health surveillance is about systematically watching out for early signs of work-related ill health in employees who may be exposed to certain health risks as a preventative measure. It means putting in place certain procedures to achieve this.
Who needs health surveillance?
Your manager will assess if any health surveillance us required whilst undertaking risk assessments of your job and role. If any are required, Occupational Health will arrange appointments for you and send a questionnaire for you to complete.
