Q&A

Do you have a sickness absence rate of more than 5%?

Targeted health education

Targeted health education is more about identifying a specific health need among your workforce and planning and delivering health promotion activities that will address that need. These programmes are often identified through looking at common causes for staff sickness or where there has been a significant trigger such as employee illness or accident. Recent examples that we have developed for our customers include a training package and information leaflet on voice care for call handlers in a national contact centre and a toolbox talk style session on noise and hearing protection for a construction sub-contractor.

Fitness for work

Sometimes even the more reliable and loyal employees can develop problems that lead to them struggling and not being able to cope with their job. We can assist you by establishing if there is an underlying health problem causing this and advising how it can be best managed. Rarely, an employee’s health may make their current role unsuitable and we can advise you on what a more suitable job role for that employee may look like – for example what kind of physical and psychological capabilities they have and what their ability is currently.

Health affecting performance issues

Many health conditions can directly affect work performance especially if they cause pain or as is commonly found affect the bones or joints, breathing, concentration or agility. With good symptom control however most people with health conditions can perform their usual work tasks in a satisfactory way.
