Protection of health at work

There are certain activities with an employee' or postgraduate student's role that may involve them undertaking tasks that could pose a risk to their health and the health and safety of others.

Occupational Health are able to conduct medical assessments for certain activity-based tasks, not only to assess the employees suitability to undertake the task, but to monitor any ill heath affects the task may cause. We are also able to offer vaccination to employees and postgraduate students who work in various settings such as clinical laboratories, the NHS, and for staff who are travelling as part of their employed role and/or research.

The medical assessments available are split into 4 categories:

  • Heath Surveillance
  • Safety Critical Medical Assessments
  • Other Medical Health Assessments
  • Vaccination Service

Please see the advice in the relevant headings and the PDF documents on the right for further guidance.
