Occupational Health Services
Our team at Cahernane Medical Centre provide services that focus on the prevention of ill health and the promotion of health and wellbeing at work. Research shows that good health is good for business and better workplaces have better financial results.
Medicals (pre-employment and annual)
We currently work with two local companies providing occupational health services. In order to have good understanding of the premises and working environment a member of our team will firstly visit the premises to assess the role/roles expected to be undertaken by new employees.
Hearing Surveillance (Audiometry)
Pre-employment audiometry can enable pre-existing notches (or other hearing problems) to be detected. It is advised that all employees are screened at the pre-employment stage and at intervals if they are working in noisy areas. This can identify at-risk employees and give clarity on the effectiveness of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and control measures. It is advised that all employees are screened at the pre-employment stage and at intervals if they are working in noisy areas.
Assessments of Occupational Injury
We facilitate same day or ‘urgent’ appointments and follow up reviews for employees with occupational injuries.
Fitness for Work / Return to Work Assessments
We provide specialist, independent and decisive advice on medical issues, that will support both the employer and employee in the recovery to full medical fitness for work.
Vaccinations (flu, Hepatitis, Tetanus and Travel)
We offer a full range of vaccinations and can hold clinics to suit time/days of the week for the employer
Workplace Wellbeing Days
We have been involved in work place wellbeing events held by local businesses during the last couple of years. We provide nursing support onsite to discuss the benefits of employee wellbeing through promotion of exercise and nutrition in the workplace. We can also offer individual employee assessments looking at BMI, height, weight, blood sugar and blood pressure checks.
