Accidents At Work
Accidents at Work
Our health and safety team can help you investigate accidents and identify root causes (immediate and underlying causes), which will be followed up with a written investigation with recommendations. As part of the investigation, it is often beneficial, and sometimes necessary, to refer the injured person for an occupational health assessment.
The reasons for this might include:
- assistance with counselling following the accident
- planning a return to work programme around their injury and recovery
- demonstrating care towards the employee’s welfare and wellbeing
Where can a Postaccident Health Assessment be Carried Out?
These can be at your workplace or our offices in Wootton Bassett, and in some circumstances the employee’s home. This would be in the form of an Occupational Health Assessment or Management Referral; see the relevant tabs or contact us.
