Why Do You Need Health Surveillance?
According to government research, in 2017/18, £15 billion was spent on work-related injuries and new cases of ill health. Health surveillance allows employers to identify ill-health in employees early on and take any measures necessary. Health surveillance provides employers with important data that can help them evaluate potential health risks in the workplace and identify any lapses in health and safety control measures.
A health surveillance service can also help employees feel confident enough to raise concerns about risks to their health in the workplace and can be an opportunity to reinforce their education and training on the correct use of protective equipment and health measures.
