What is an Occupational Health Assessment?

An occupational health assessment occurs when an employee returns to work after an extended period of absence or in situations where an employee’s health is affecting their work.

We offer a myriad of Occupational Health Assessment services that can be purchased on a ad hoc basis. Absenteeism is costing the UK economy more than £100 billion per year. This is an issue that effects all businesses, and we fully appreciate that employers need a professional and worthwhile advise when dealing with staff absences.

We deliver a comprehensive approach with our clients, and we always endeavour to offer support and guidance to businesses and their employees.

Our expert team of clinicians will assess an employee’s ability to work due to health or disability reasons and provide a clear written report to help the employer manage the case.

We can also advise on suitable return-to-work dates and which jobs those affected could safely carry out. It may be that your employees need rehabilitation on their return to work or adjustments made to be able to perform their roles efficiently.
