Work Health Assessment
The purpose of the Work Health Assessment is to identify any health issues which could affect the health and well-being of an employee in the workplace and to identify any measures which can be put in place to maximise this. Evidence suggests healthy employees have a more fulfilling work life balance.
- A Work Health Assessment is used to assess an employee’s fitness to carry out all aspects of a new role, or to determine any reasonable adjustments, that maybe necessary if they have a pre – existing health condition, or any health condition which is likely to come under the terms of the Equality Act 2010.
- The Work Health Assessment consists of an initial health questionnaire which is assessed by a Nurse and if necessary, an appointment may be arranged either with an Occupational Health Specialist Practitioner or an Occupational Health Physician.
- An outcome report and clearance to commence in the proposed role will be issued or recommendations for any reasonable adjustments within the work place will be made to the employer with the consent of the employee
- Recommendations will be made in relation to occupational immunisations and vaccinations, and/ or health surveillance or medical assessments prior to commencing in post.
