Find out more about Health Surveillance
Use the links below to find out more about how KINNECT can support you and keep our employees safe with our Health Surveillance services.
Health surveillance is a system of ongoing health checks to help businesses manage the risk to their employees. These health checks may be required by law in industries where employees may be exposed to noise or vibration, ionising radiation, solvents, fumes, dusts, biological agents and other substances hazardous to health, or work in compressed air.
Sometimes businesses may not be legally required to adopt a health check program but will do so to protect their employees (for instance, from sun exposure).
If you aren’t sure whether you need to or not, KINNECT can help guide you through the relevant steps to make sure you are meeting your responsibilities.
Engaging an Occupational Hygienist
An Occupational Hygienist is specially trained to review all the potential environmental hazards or exposures that workers may be exposed to during their working day. KINNECT will refer you to GCG, our preferred provider for Occupational Hygienist services to review all of the work environments for your employees, creating a ‘Health Risk Assessment’. This is a comprehensive report detailing the significance of the exposures to hazards; including whether the exposure is low or high, helping to determine which workers would require periodic health assessments.
Engaging an Occupational Physician
An Occupational Physician is a highly trained doctor with clinical expertise in how work affects people’s health. Dr Graeme Edwards is KINNECT’s Occupational and Environmental Physician. He will review the Health Risk Assessments prepared by GCG and provide medical recommendations. He determined what specific health assessment criteria would be used in developing your Health Assessment program. This input ensures that the program will meet any legislative requirements and ensure the program is modelled on best practice for your industry to ensure the utmost safety of employees.
Engage KINNECT as your Occupational Health Provider
Following Dr Edwards’ advice, KINNECT will map out the specific health monitoring requirements for each ‘Similar Exposure Group’ of employees. ‘Similar Exposure Group’ or SEGS means employees are grouped with other employees who are likely to face similar exposure to hazards in their daily working life. The group that they are placed in will determine what tests will be in the periodic health assessment and how frequently they will be tested.
Rollout & Integration of Your Periodic Health Assessment program
KINNECT can then support your business with the rollout of the program and manage your periodic health assessment program going forward. We can also help you to integrate your health monitoring programme into your pre-employment medicals, ensuring your employees are safe throughout the whole lifecycle.
