What is Occupational Health?
Occupational Health promotes and maintains the physical and mental wellbeing of people in the workplace. It focuses on the health and wellness of an organisation’s employees, both as individuals, and as part of a group. Occupational Health works within a business to keep workers safe and healthy and ensures that companies take their legal responsibilities, in relation to health surveillance, seriously. Occupational Health can be both reactive and proactive. It can respond to episodes of ill health or help to identify potential health issues or impact of the working role or environment on a person’s health and wellbeing. It is a vital part of the public health agenda.

- Help to quickly identify any pattern of ill health
- Support managers to adopt healthy practices
