Since 1877, we’ve been focussed on keeping our customers in the best of health. Here at Health Shield, we truly believe that nothing should get in the way of good healthcare, which is why we harness the latest technology and experience in the industry to provide affordable, accessible and flexible employee benefits. In order to keep your workforce healthy, happy and more productive you need to think about occupational health.
What do Health Shield’s Occupational Health Questionnaires include?
Night Worker - employees who work after 11pm and before 6am should be offered an annual Night Worker Health Questionnaire to ensure their health is consistently being monitored.
Display System Equipment (DSE) - as an employer, you’re required to offer employees who work with display screen equipment a DSE assessment every year.
Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) - Employees who use vibrating machinery are required to have a HAVS review, this is one of the key areas for claims against employers.
Working at Heights - helping employers meet their duty of care by ensuring their employees are medically fit to operate at heights in their working environment, reducing potential risks.
Musculoskeletal Assessments - musculoskeletal injuries are damage caused to muscles, bones and joints. This questionnaire reviews the risk to those who are exposed to potential musculoskeletal injuries or who already suffer from musculoskeletal health problems.
Maternity - a risk assessment should be conducted when an employee is expecting a baby to ensure the workplace isn’t putting the expectant mother or baby at any risk.
