Occupational health

Occupational health is an independent, confidential, advisory service which supports the physical and mental health and wellbeing of all employees.

What do we do in occupational health?

The health and wellbeing of our workforce is one of our priorities. We promote a positive relationship between an employee's work and health.

The service aims to reduce the likelihood of conditions developing in to an acute stage or becoming chronic, through early treatment, with a focus on long-term condition management and relapse prevention.

Support is available via self-referral or management referral.

Our function is to establish and maintain a healthy and safe working environment, maintain a well performing and motivated workforce, prevent work related disease and accidents, and maintain and promote the working ability and wellbeing of employees.

Our occupational health team helps to keep people well at work both physically and mentally.

Occupational health is concerned with the effects of work on health and health on work.
