These examinations are aimed at helping employees detect and prevent disease development.

    These assessments aim to ensure that workers are fit to perform assigned tasks effectively, minimizing risk to health and safety, by making reasonable adjustments to the job.

    These assessments help employers manage employees who are absent from work for a prolonged period of time due to sickness. It helps employers gain a better understanding of the needs of the employee for the safe return to work. An additional element is assessment for gradual return to work (Eg: Employee issued with light duties).

  • Diagnosis, investigation and management of occupational diseases
    This helps employees identify new symptoms or signs of worsening symptoms, and establish preventive measures to eliminate or control the condition through routine screening or ad-hoc consultations.

Consultancy
