Occupational Health (OH) is about assessing and advising on the effect work might have on an employee's health, and what effect an employee's health might have on his/her work. Good occupational health services are central to the effective management of workplace health by:
Protecting and promoting the health and well-being of the workforce, hence protecting and enhancing your image and reputation as a good employer;
Providing support and early intervention to the process of effective absence management, and improved opportunities for timely rehabilitation;
Fulfilling the statutory requirement to have access to 'competent' occupational health advice as part of the organisational arrangements to ensure that the health of staff and others is not adversely affected by their work
As a professional specialist in her field of Occupational Health I cannot recommend Wendy highly enough. Wendy's commitment to our OH department and team at what was a testing time was second to none and all credit goes to her for the quick assessment of what we needed to change to ensure that our processes and policies were workable. Wendy's professionalism, knowledge of SEQOHS, guidance and advice on the best way forward for our Occupational health service was always delivered in a professional, impartial manner and helped us to define the best way forward. In addition to her excellent strategic and process input, the OH referrals she undertook whilst working with us always resulted in a positive outcome for both the individual and the Trust, the advice provided always of an was excellent level and practical for both parties to implement. The policies Wendy wrote, the advice she provided and referrals she managed for us were bespoke, demonstrated the knowledge she had gleaned of our business, whilst working under pressure. Wendy helped us through a very difficult period with a smile and genuine approach and for that we are extremely grateful. Thank you
