MHE offer excellence in occupational health services, including health surveillance, screening, monitoring and tailor-made wellbeing services.
We recognise that your employees are the lifeblood of your business. Happy and healthy staff are more productive, loyal, and are less likely to take time away from work. Each year, over 170 million working days are lost in the UK due to sickness absence.
Minimising this absence is essential, because the longer the employee is away from the workplace, the less chance there is of them successfully returning to work.
We also recognise that health surveillance enables businesses to identify ill-health as early as possible, to allow prompt corrective action for the good of all concerned.
Over the years, there has been a significant increase in the number of liability claims and HSE fines or prosecutions made in relation to work-related injuries, accidents and illness. Our services enable businesses to demonstrate their duty of care, whilst minimising absenteeism due to ill-health.
Following the surveillance, a full certificate of fitness is generated for each employee. The consultation, combined with our management referral system creates a comprehensive report which details clear advice on the employee’s health and well-being requirements.
Many businesses are unaware that health surveillance may be required by law if your employees are exposed to certain dangers within the workplace, such as solvents, fumes, dusts, vibration, noise, biological agents, ionising radiation or if they work in compressed air.
Despite the best will in the world, risk assessments followed by control measures aren’t always entirely reliable or effective, so health surveillance ensures that any ill-health affects are identified as soon as possible.
