Health Surveillance & Assessments
Where risk assessments and/or legislation indicate that health surveillance is required, we can provide health surveillance and assessments by competent practitioners. Assessments can also be arranged for specific groups of workers who may be at particular risk. Health assessments may include for example:
- Audiology (hearing), spirometry (lung function); and skin assessments
- Driver and fork lift truck operator assessments
- Food handlers’ assessments
- Vibration (HAVS) and musculoskeletal assessments
Whatever your requirements, we will work with you to develop solutions designed to help keep your employees healthy and at work.
Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS)
Hand-arm vibration is vibration transmitted from work processes into workers’ hands and arms. It can be caused by operating hand-held power tools, such as road breakers, and hand-guided equipment, such as powered lawnmowers, or by holding materials being processed by machines, such as pedestal grinders.
