Benefits of an Occupational Health Programme

Organisations have a legal duty to look after employees whilst they are at work and there are many benefits from investing in their health, safety wellbeing.

Employees are arguably the most important asset of an organisation. Whilst UK employers have a legal responsibility to protect their employees’ health and safety, it also makes good commercial sense to invest in their wellbeing: the cost of workplace ill health to the UK in 2016/17 was £9.7 billion*.

Organisations who have a designated occupational health provider are supporting the prevention of work-related illnesses, managing return-to-work cases following illness and are aiding the quality of life and earnings of employees. Higher morale and lower staff turnover translate directly into competitive advantages, reducing sickness absence and improving business performance.

An Occupational Health Programme can be individually designed for an organisation with their cooperation to ensure that comprehensive occupational health is achievable.
