Improve Your Business Performance by Using Occupational Health Service during the Credit Crunch
HEATHROW MEDICAL – If you are a small business or a larger conglomerate; private or public sector, Occupational Health Services can help. A little investment can go a long way.
Occupational Health Services usually includes the following:
Pre-Employment Screening to ensure that potential employees are suitable for the role.
Regular Health Screening to make sure that you maintain the optimum workforce but gives added business benefits. It gives you the ability to promote this fact to existing customers and also you can provide a solid foundation based on fact to secure new customers. Why would a new customer go to a competitor when they can be assured that the new supplier has a very happy, healthy and productive team of workers?
Provision of regular monitoring and reporting as you would expect from a professional company of specialists.
A reputable provider will minimise the impact of stress, and demonstrate that you have taken all reasonable steps to ensure a healthy working environment.
A well-designed occupational health service will protect against litigation. E.g. workers exposed to chemicals, noise or other pollutants require regular screening.
Professional service providers will deliver value for money through using technology. Whilst being of a size and scale to be able to provide face-to-face services, you will get a better return from a company who has utilised technology such as video and telephone conferencing facilities.
