What is Occupational Health?
Occupational Health provide medical / health advice to organisations. Such advice is specifically related to the employee's work (occupation). Occupational Health advice and reports will take into consideration the work environment and can generally be obtained more quickly that requesting a report from an employees GP.
As part of any Occupational Health assessment, it is important to provide OH with the right information and details about the job role and to ask the right questions. For example, if an employee's job role involves lifting and the employee has a bad back, OH cannot give a report of whether an employee is able to carry out this function if you don't tell them about it and ask the question!
