SME Occupational Health Services
Everwell does not just support larger companies but has a dedicated team supporting SME clients with anything from 5-1000 employees. Everwell has over 150 such SME clients across the UK from a wide variety of industries. Each and every one of those clients has slightly different environments, exposures, processes, sickness absence procedures, etc.... However, the two main services common to most organisations are sickness absence support and annual health surveillance. We, of course, provide a much wider range of OH services such as pre-employment screening, employee well-being, counselling, and similar but these are less frequently requested.
Feel free to contact us to discuss any services that you may require.
Naturally, all the elements of the health screening are designed to be compliant with HSE guidelines and the statutory requirements for health surveillance.
When you are considering what Health Surveillance & Fitness to Work Medicals are required for manufacturing industries in general, the following represent common elements you need to consider providing:
Audiometric / Hearing tests - for those exposed to noise. Spirometry / Lung-function - for those exposed to dust/fumes/vapours - i.e. respiratory sensitisers Skin checks - for those exposed to chemicals/adhesives cement - i.e. skin sensitisers HAVS (Hand Arm Vibration) - for those working with vibrating power tools Plant Operator or Driver Medicals - for those employees operating forklifts, cranes, dumpers, etc... General Medicals - possibly for those working at heights or working in confined spaces Night-worker Assessments - for those employees working at night
There are also other less common health surveillance requirements which are linked to specific exposures to certain health risks (i.e. those exposed to lead, other biological agents, cold/hot environments, isocyanate’s, etc...). We are happy to discuss any of the less common exposures & health hazards, so please just contact us to explore any areas of concern.
We are happy to provide these services in the workplace at your convenience on an adhoc/call-off or on a regular scheduled basis (i.e. 1 day per month, 1 day per quarter, 1,2,3 day(s) per week, ....).
Sickness Absence Support
Everwell can provide adhoc or scheduled sickness absence support to help you minimise the distruption caused by absent employees. With our help you can get employees back to work quicker and safely and help keep them in the workplace. For those employees with longer term health problems we can help give you the knowledge to confidently plan the way forward.
