The main goal of our occupational health team is to ensure that you are safe, in both body and mind, at the workplace. We can assist with an illness or injury which happened at work, while also providing employers with the right information on keeping their workplace safe and risk free.
The key to good occupational health is preventative measures, which we are dedicated to helping all businesses with. Health and safety should be a top priority in the workplace, in order to reduce the risk of work-related illnesses and injuries. We can be there to advise on the best measures to take in order to prevent these accidents along with providing treatment and care for employees.
There are a wide range of risk factors involved in the workplace, including:
- Spread of infectious diseases
- Repetitive strain injury
- Back problems or spinal injuries
- Mental health disorders (stress, anxiety, depression)
- Strains and sprains from heavy lifting
- Injuries caused by unsafe workplaces
- Illnesses from contaminated drinking water
These are just a few of the most common occupational health hazards, although each workplace will have their own risks. We can ensure those risks are minimized while helping employees through whatever illness or injury they are experiencing. By reducing the chances of illness or injury you are giving employees a safer and more enjoyable workplace and reducing the number of days off taken by staff.
There are a number of different safety measures that a workplace can use in order to protect its staff. This includes having the right equipment, ergonomic desks and chairs, committing to the correct training and following health and safety regulations. If you’re unsure whether our occupational team can benefit you and your workplace then feel free to ask us any questions you may have.
