Health Surveillance Medicals

What are Health Surveillance Medicals

Health surveillance medicals are a system of ongoing health checks. Some health checks are required by law for employees who are exposed to certain risks such noise or vibration, ionising radiation, solvents, fumes, dusts, biological agents and other substances hazardous to health, or working in high risk areas such as confined spaces.

The results of health surveillance can contribute to a company demonstrating health and safety risks are not affecting employee’s health, or that more needs to be done to achieve compliance.

The main health and safety Legislation that refers to or requires health surveillance is:

  • Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations
  • Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations
  • Noise at Work Regulations
  • Control of Vibration at Work Regulations

Safewell can help you design the specific Health Surveillance program for the risks in your company, not just a blanket approach. For example if the employees are exposed to vibrating hand tools, noisy machines and dust then Hand Arm Vibration (HAVS), hearing (audiometry) and breathing (lung function) will all be part of the health surveillance medical.

Following the health surveillance medical the employee and the employer will be given a Fitness for Work Certificate stating the outcome as fit for work or fit for work with restrictions.

Where are Health Surveillance Medicals Carried Out

As with most of our services, these can be at your workplace or our offices in Wootton Bassett. If it’s only a handful of people or individuals then our office works well otherwise it makes sense to arrange at your workplace.
