We offer two types of night worker assessments. The first is a questionnaire screening assessment. The questionnaires are distributed to staff to complete and return to OH3 for assessment by one of our Occupational Health Advisors. If they have elected to have a health medical then the company will be informed and an appointed offered at a time to suit the employee. If any health issues are indicated on the form the employee will receive a follow up appointment either by telephone assessment for a face to face medical and the company will receive a report which will detail any necessary adjustments.
The second assessment is to offer a face to face medical with one of our approachable occupational health advisors. This assessment consists of a health questionnaire and general health check up including BP, Pulse, BMI and urinalysis and advice and support for employees whose health may be affected by their shift pattern.
It is important that employees are aware that some medical conditions may be affected by night work and these can include diabetes, epilepsy and other conditions of medications schedules are altered because of shift work.
Our nurses and doctors can advise the employee and management on the best way to manage their health in relation to shift work.
