What is Occupational Health
Information on Occupational Health
Occupational health seek to promote and maintain the health and wellbeing of employees, with the aim of ensuring a positive relationship between an employee's work and health. OHS can provide medical input and assist in the recognition of health risks, their severity, and potential impact on the health of a worker, including, their physical and psychological capability to undertake a job task. Our staff can advise on the need to develop suitable ongoing schemes to detect early signs of work-related ill health and check that controls are protective; the need for workplace adjustments, management controls, and provide a review of the effectiveness of controls on the health of a worker.
OHS does not work in isolation and is one part only of the Health and Safety Department, for other relevant services supporting health please also consider information from the Health and Safety Department Services;
