Problem to Solve

The energy solutions company were due their annual Audiometry and H.A.V.s medicals for another year. These are provided by Safewells occupational health department, the medicals help to determine if any major changes have occurred to the employees health and what could be the potential cause.

Safewell Solution

During one of the medicals a member of staff was found to have a severe case of H.A.V.S (Hand arm vibration syndrome) Caused by extensive use of vibrational tools over a period of years. Safewells occupational health technician referred the employee for a H.A.V.S. level 4 referral to an OHP. The OHP (Occupational Health Physician) will conduct a series of thorough tests to establish the severity of the condition and determine the appropriate course of action going forwards for their employment.
Restrictions were placed on the employee by Safewells occupational health technician to protect them from further harm until the assessment had been completed and the appropriate diagnosis determined.
