Occupational health advice and guidance for your company, info for employers and HR

Occupational health is defined as: the branch of medicine dealing with the prevention and treatment of job-related injuries and illnesses. Our blog aims to share our years of expertise and to provide advice and guidance, this is so employers and organisations can implement best practises to ensure that the physical health and mental well-being of their employees is properly catered for and safeguarded.

Our articles will seek to educate our readers on why proper occupational health is required, what provisions employers should make for occupational health, what they must have in place by law, what is good to have in place to optimise performance and to protect the safety of employees, as well as what requirements are nice to have in place for the well-being of their staff. We will also look to answer many questions which our readers will have in relation to occupational health, such as; what to do if you have a colleague off of work on long term sick leave, with discussion on how best to support the colleague in their recovery back to work.
