Health surveillance

We use a wide range of health surveillance services to monitor the health and wellbeing of your workforce, and intervene with
the necessary health support if and when it’s required.
What's it all about?
Health surveillance is about putting in place regular and appropriate procedures to detect early signs of work-related ill health.

If risks are not managed appropriately and health monitoring is not in place, then a working environment may directly impact on an employees’ health

We use a wide range of health surveillance services to monitor the health and wellbeing of your workforce, and intervene with the necessary health support if and when it’s required. All of our services are designed to identify any causes for concern before they become too problematic, helping to maintain general employee welfare and prevent absences before they occur.

Some of our health surveillance services include:

We perform full physical and mental health checks to every member of staff. This will identify any potential risk factors and gives the team at APL Health feedback on areas in which individuals can be supported. The health check will also give the individual a wealth of useful information on their own body condition and lifestyle improvements they may wish to make.

In addition to the general health checks we also offer a musculoskeletal evaluation. This will evaluate the condition of the individual’s muscular and skeletal systems, and any strains as a result of their job role or repetitive activities.

For those working in loud environments and at risk of developing hearing problems, testing can identify early damage and check if the current PPE is working and suggest ways to reduce the risk.

If staff are surrounded by hazardous chemicals such as welding fumes, pesticides or any disease of animals communicable to humans, lung capacity and condition should be checked. Our specialist equipment and specially trained nurses can investigate any potential spirometry issues.

Reliable eyesight is important, however as computers, tablets and mobile phones become more common so do the associated risks to our vision. Our testing ensures that this occupational hazard is seen to.

Before an employee begins working in their new role for your school or academy, it’s important to ensure that any health risks are addressed and subsequent measures are put in place to support employees.

Regular checks to ensure employees are fit to carry out their role such as safe to work at heights (aerial cutting of trees) or healthy skin (metal work and exposure to lubricants or latex).
