Audiometry

Health surveillance is the process of monitoring the health of employees exposed to specific health risks during the course of their work. Employers need to provide health surveillance to demonstrate that they are meeting their duty of care for their employees. The purpose of the health surveillance should be covered in the companies’ occupational health policy.

Progressive legislation from the European Union and Parliament places a duty on employers to protect the Health and Safety of their employees. There is an increasing responsibility for employers to provide health surveillance for employees who are potentially at risk. The employer’s responsibility for Health and Safety is continually widening to include areas such as Stress Management, Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome and Back Pain. The financial benefits to employers of compliance are significant. For example the overall cost of “back pain” alone to industry is estimated to be £5 billion.
