Health surveillance and statutory medicals

Employee’s attendance for health surveillance is mandatory where a risk assessment has established that a need for health surveillance exists.

Employers have a general duty of care to ensure (so far as is reasonably practicable) the health, safety and welfare of all their employees.  Health surveillance is about having procedures in place to detect work-related ill health at an early stage and acting on the results.  Health surveillance, therefore, can show whether control measures to reduce and avoid workplace health hazards are working.

Our health surveillance services can be carried out either as a health questionnaire, at the premises of the employer or at our consulting rooms at BMI The Lancaster Hospital, Garstang Medical Centre, Cumbria Rural Ent. Agency (Kendal) and Phoenix Business Centre (Barrow).

Services include:

  • Nightworker assessments
  • Driver fitness medicals including forklift trucks and cherry pickers
  • Working at heights/confined spaces medicals (safety critical)
  • Hand-arm vibration examinations (HAVS)
  • Lung function testing for individuals exposed to fumes, dusts or gases
  • Skin inspections for early detection of dermatitis
  • Medical and biological surveillance and monitoring for exposure to lead, asbestos, ionising radiation and some chemicals
  • Hearing tests for employees who are exposed to noise
  • Vision screening for Display Screen Equipment (DSE) users and drivers
