The occupational health team comprises of a small team of occupational health specialist doctors and nurses and administrative personnel who: 

  • devise preventative strategies for identifying and controlling hazards to health arising from work 
  • advise on fitness for work, vocational placement, return to work after illness, ill health retirement, work-related illness and the control of occupational hazards 
  • assist in fulfilling statutory (e.g. health surveillance) and regulatory requirements (e.g. guidance on food safety, the application of the Equality Act) to ensure that the health of staff and others is not adversely affected by their work 
  • ensure that work health issues are appropriately managed 
  • promote health and wellbeing at work
