Our Occupational Health Assessments cover all aspects of workplace health and safety, ensuring that your employees are working in a secure environment. There are a wide range of risks in the workplace, depending on the type of business, and these factors can cause a variety of illnesses, injuries, and diseases within the workplace.

Pre-Employment Health Screenings are confidential, and allow for individuals to be supported in their new role should they have an underlying health issue that requires reasonable adaptations to the workplace. We professionally carry out these medical screenings after the recruitment process for candidates that have been chosen for the role. The screenings involve the prospective employee completing our detailed Health Questionnaire. The submission is reviewed by our experienced OHA’s and a potential follow-up telephone call with an occupational health professional to clarify any responses. We would then recommend a face-to-face medical assessment within the first six months of employment.

Safety Critical Medicals determine whether someone has the medical suitability for the safety critical role they are carrying out. The worker will be checked for issues which are relevant to the type of work they are doing.

Safety critical work can include:

Working at Height: This job has many risks, and those working high up must not have any health conditions which could create a risk of falling due to incapacitation.

Driving: Workers who drive a vehicle/operate plant machinery regularly – this could be driving a crane, tractor, van, excavator, tipper truck, or many others.

Confined Space: The space just has to be substantially enclosed, not particularly small – with a risk of dangerous substances or conditions. Workers could be affected by dust, a lack of oxygen, explosions, or poisonous gases.

Night Workers: Working at night comes with a variety of risks, and so there is a legal requirement for employers to carry out night worker medicals to ensure they are fit for this type of work. Health conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes, and respiratory ailments are considered in the assessment . Night workers are also assessed for the impact that their shift pattern may have upon their mental health.

Lone Workers: There are certain risks when you are working alone, as there is no one to help you if you experience a health problem. Lone workers are assessed for medical conditions such as epilepsy or heart conditions which may cause sudden incapacitation. · Forklift/ Plant Operators: All forklift/plant operators must have a medical assessment before and then during employment, as they are required to have a certain level of fitness to operate such heavy machinery.

After the assessment, the worker will be given a Medical Certificate for the type of medical they have undergone which describes the outcome decision, and if they have any recommended restrictions for the role.

We are RISQS approved suppliers to deliver PTS Medicals for Network Rail personnel and sub-contractors, upon satisfactory completion of a medical, results are uploaded to the Sentinel portal. The PTS medical is a mandatory occupational health assessment that all rail workers and sub-contractors must undertake before attending work on a Network Rail site.

The PTS medical ensures that any railway operatives meet the medical fitness requirements necessary to work on or near trackside or undertake any work on or near a Railway line within the Network Rail infrastructure.

Our Oil & Gas UK accredited Occupational Physician can perform medicals suitable for OGUK workers (UK waters and the North Sea)

Every offshore worker must undergo and pass an Oil & Gas UK (OGUK) Offshore Medical examination.

The offshore medical certificate, as it is commonly known, is controlled by UKOOA and renewals are necessary every 2 years irrespective of the age of the offshore worker.

We are approved by the Joint Industry Board (JIB) to provide medicals which are compliant to the recommended standard. Members of the JIB are able to claim a portion of the cost back from the JIB. As from the 01 January 2018, JIB members can receive funding for Occupational Health Assessments for all operatives that participate in the JIB Benefits Scheme. Each operative can receive one funded Occupational Health Assessment (OHA) every three years, via one of JIB-approved providers. You can obtain this funding from ECIS up to the cost of the OHA, or *£85 (excl. VAT), whichever is the lowest amount.
