Practically any job involves everyday lifting and handling of loads of varying weight. Most of the time, both employers and employees overlook the risks of lifting, as well as the damage it could do to our health.
Health & Pre-Employment Screening
Health screening or surveillance means looking out for any early signs of work-related health problems in your employees, particularly those who are exposed to certain health risks.

My Occupational Health takes great pleasure in its health promotion services It is through its health promotion schemes that MyOH is given the opportunity to meet your employees and bring encouragement and inspiration to those looking to improve or maintain their healthy lifestyles.
Pregnancy can be a wonderful time for women; for employers it can be a period of uncertainty. Not knowing what their obligations are and what they can expect from their pregnant employee whilst still managing to keep up with the workload can lead to tense circumstances, especially for small businesses where specific duties cannot be easily transferred to other work colleagues.
Work Risk Assesment
Carrying out an assessment is the best way to ensure that your workplace is safe for your employees and also for any visitors. It is the most effective way of making sure that your business complies with the health and safety laws and regulations, before any irregularities are found, which could entail fines for your business.
Dealing with an employee who is on sick leave can be very difficult at times, for short-term absence – 5 days or less – can easily spiral into long-term sick leave. The root cause of sick leave might well be a problem at work which is causing the illness to aggravate; it is thus essential to tackle the problem immediately to ensure that the affected employee can return to his or her workplace as soon as possible.
