Health Surveillance

Health and safety legislation exists to prevent ill health arising from the workplace.  It is about putting in place systematic, regular and appropriate procedures to detect early signs of work related ill health among employees exposed to certain health risks; and acting on the results. 

The following are some examples of how we can help you to comply with legislation:
