Any type of business should employ a doctor who is qualified in occupational medicine. This will allow you to protect the health and wellbeing of your employees, while adhering to important health and safety issues. I am Dr Ian Perry, a registered professional in Cornwall, and I provide expert occupational medicine and health and safety advice.
A company doctor brings many benefits your business. For a safe and healthy workplace, the doctor you choose must be qualified in occupational medicine. When you employ new staff, a pre-employment medical examination should be carried out. This is where the occupational physician comes in. By carrying out a medical examination, you will find out if there are any predisposing problems.
As a reputable business, you should comply with important health and safety requirements. Employees work in environments that are covered by RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations). Legally, you must carry out a review of hazards in the workplace. These tests must be completed by a professional who is fully qualified in occupational medicine. I provide first-class advice about the field if occupational and aviation medicine.
