What is an Occupational Health Assessment

An Occupational Health Assessment is a consultation carried out by our qualified Occupational Health Professionals. The occupational health assessment is used to advise management on an employee’s health issues in relation to their work, and to make recommendations on reasonable adjustments that could be considered to ensure a safe/healthy working environment for that employee. All occupational health assessments are confidential.

When is an Occupational Health Assessment Needed

Here are some examples of when an occupational health assessment is required

  • An individual should be referred for an assessment where there is concern that they may have work related health problems or that their health is being aggravated by work tasks
  • There are difficulties coping on return after being absent – following a serious illness or injury or due to a disability
  • There may be underlying ill health or disability contributing to performance issues
  • There is long term or frequent sickness absence

If you are unsure whether a referral is appropriate, please contact us for further advice. In addition, the referral may be discussed with or initiated by your Human Resource (HR) advisers

What Happens after the Occupational Health Assessment?

A confidential report will be written, and with the employees signed consent the report will be sent to them and you (their employer). Each report is tailored to the employee and their individual situation. The report will include advice on any medical conditions and the effect on work, symptoms, prognosis, and likelihood of recovery, what adjustments could/should be considered, and over a suggested time frame.

Where can Occupational Health Assessments be Carried Out

These can be at your workplace or our offices in Wootton Bassett, and in some circumstances the employees home.
