If you own a business, you may have recognised the importance of employing an occupational physician. If you haven’t, you really need to! The health of your employees is instrumental to your success and failure to grasp the importance of occupational medicine can have dire repercussions, especially for a start-up company! If you want to put your plans into motion in line with RIDDOR compliance, get in touch!
It's easy to overlook your various obligations and to say, "Well, it'll never happen to us". But all too often it does. Mistakes are made, injuries happen, and when it turns out the proper practices and procedures were not in place, things quickly fall apart.
I can help you ensure a safe and healthy workplace in which any potential risks are recorded and minimised. Your workplace will be an environment where your legal obligations are continually being met by both you and your employees.
To do this, I ensure the following:
How Important Is This?
Compliance with RIDDOR ((Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations)
Pre-Employment Medical Examinations for All Staff
The Correct Notation of Any Pre-Existing and Potential Medical Issues and Complaints
Compliance with the Law Regarding Health and Safety
A Confident and Competent Workforce That Is Mindful of Health and Safety
Accurate Risk Assessments for Every Working Environment
As a professional occupational physician, I will:
What Do I Do?
Provide Complex Case Management for Occupational Illnesses
Provide Health and Safety Advice for a Healthier Workplace
Diagnose, Prevent, and Manage Work-Related Health Problems
Suggest Practices That Will Minimise the Risk of Accidents and Injuries That Lead to Claims and Criminal Proceedings
