Q9: Key Topic - Health Monitoring

Question: Does your department have systems in place to identify Health Monitoring needs and ensure that the monitoring takes place? 

Occupational Health is concerned with the effects of work on health and the effects of health on work. Effective preventative occupational health strategies are particularly important given the diverse range of hazards and working environments associated with activities undertaken by University staff and students. 

A key part of these strategies is the correct use of monitoring systems to help check that control measures are working correctly, as well as giving an early warning of when interventions or additional controls might be required for individuals.

This question highlights where health monitoring might be required and asks whether the department’s systems are suitable for identifying and ensuring that those affected are both registered and participating in this monitoring.
