An employee health screening can be described as a set of tests and measures that are used to improve wellbeing and identify health risk amongst employees. Organisational health screenings and work health assessments can be beneficial both to employees and employers.
Healthy employees are one of the most valuable assets to your business, and so employee health check ups are growing in popularity with a lot of forward-thinking employers. Creating a healthier workplace can often be a challenge for employers. However, regular health checks and robust employee screening programmes can increase awareness of health issues, identify problems, and promote a healthier lifestyle for all workers.
When it comes to knowing your employees and understanding what they need in terms of occupational health support it can make a huge difference in preventing workplace-related illness – which sees millions of working days lost every year.
An online general health screening of new and existing employees aims to learn about the needs of your staff in terms of their health so that you can ensure they have all the support they need to stay fit and healthy on the job.
An organisation’s workforce is its most important asset, so it makes sense for management to do all they can to prevent or detect illness and promote health and wellbeing.
My Occ Health is able to provide a virtual screening assessment for new employees, whether they are working within an office, in an outdoor environment or at home.
Our expert team can then advise if a further assessment with a Doctor or Specialist is required in order to provide recommendations to support the employee.
There are a range of benefits of employee health screenings for employers that outweigh the initial investment. A health screening for employees can be beneficial for both financial and cultural reasons:
Absenteeism and sick pay can be very costly for a business. However, if potentially serious health issues can be identified before it becomes chronic or debilitating for the employee it is beneficial to both parties to have a health screening.
As an employer, you won’t need to spend time and money looking for replacement staff or paying sick pay benefits. The overall effect is a more positive culture throughout your company, resulting in less overall sick days across your workforce.
It is important that you demonstrate you care about the wellbeing of your employees. Employee health screenings also increase morale and confidence in the employer as well as making for a positive workplace culture in general.
Employee health screenings help to provide peace of mind for staff. A thorough check of an employee’s health can flag any problems they might need to be aware of. Also, it gives them an opportunity to reflect on lifestyle choices and make healthier changes if needed. Routine health assessments will help to form a picture of a person’s health over time and the information gathered could be used to indicate future health issues.
Online health screening can be used to screen new or existing employees, although new employees must have at least received a firm job offer before they are asked to complete a health screening.
Our employee health screening questionnaire is available online or in a paper format for employees and it can be offered to employees annually.
If the employee wishes to complete the assessment, they will complete the comprehensive questionnaire and submit it to our team along with their signed consent form
The results will be reviewed by our specialist Occupational Health advisers and a telephone call will be placed to discuss anything which may have been highlighted, taking into account the type of work that will be done and the restrictions on the worker’s working time under the regulations.
Individualised results for each employee will then be provided to the employer.
The results will then be provided in the form of an anonymised data report and any employees who may require further assessment or support will be highlighted.
If a further assessment with a Doctor or Specialist is recommended, we can arrange this for you.
*These screenings can only be offered to new employees after a firm offer of employment, and they cannot be offered as a pre-employment screening tool.
