Health monitoring

Health monitoring is a legislative requirement that a company is required to test and monitor the health effects of known risk factors within the work environment. This is often done yearly and catered to the specific exposures/ risks known to the industry and the role undertaken.

Examples of this include:

  • Hearing tests for workers working in a noisy factory environment with heavy machinery
  • Lung function testing for construction workers exposed to dust particles from a number of materials

We would recommend annual monitoring to proactively identify health issues before they occur and become problematic.

Health monitoring typically includes the following:

  • Hearing tests
  • Lung function tests
  • Vision screening
  • Blood and urine testing for heavy metals

While health monitoring for specific hazards and exposures are a legal requirement, many employers choose to take a more holistic approach to their health monitoring and include heart health and wellness programmes for their employees.
