It encompasses a system of ongoing health checks of employees exposed to specific health risks during their work. These health checks may be required by law for employees who are exposed to noise or vibration, ionising radiation, solvents, fumes, dusts, biological agents and other substances hazardous to health, or work in compressed air.
Workplace Health surveillance is important for:
Detecting ill-health effects at an early stage, so employers can introduce better controls to prevent them getting worse
Providing data to help employers evaluate health risks
Enabling employees to raise concerns about how work affects their health
Highlighting lapses in workplace control measures, therefore providing invaluable feedback to the risk assessment
Providing an opportunity to reinforce training and education of employees (e.g. on the impact of health effects and the use of protective equipment)
Complying with legislation
