Managing occupational health includes meeting the health monitoring requirements under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 and Health and Safety at Work (General Risk Workplace Management) Regulations 2016 and being a safe and healthy business – it just makes good sense.
The critical points to this are the identification of occupational health hazards and what occupational health management and monitoring is required. BHS will establish a system of hazard risk assessment of workplace hazards (HHRA) and provide your business with a tailored programme so your occupational health is robust, compliant and, most importantly, your workplace is healthier.
The benefits for your business are:
We bring experience, expertise and a systematic approach and have a passionate team to achieve this.
We will come to your site and provide all required screening equipment.
Setting up of the appointment is easy by using our online services, or we can assist you with scheduling.
Full report back process and ongoing data management with a comprehensive report on all results is provided including analysis with any recommendations for further action and to ensure any Worksafe and ACC compliance needs are meet.
