Occupational Health Surveillance Service From ELAS Occupational Health

Occupational health surveillance is used to monitor the health of employees who have been identified as “at risk” at work either from the tasks they perform, substances used or the environment in which they work. Occupational health surveillance is intended to:

  • Protect the health of the individual employee
  • Detect any adverse health effects at an early stage
  • Assist in the evaluation of control measures
  • Comply with statutory health and safety legislation i.e. Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH)

Employers have a duty of care to carry out surveillance if / when risks to employees have been identified. They may also be required by law if you or any of your employees are regularly exposed to excessive noise or vibration, solvents, fumes, dusts, biological agents and other substances which are hazardous to health or for those who work in an environment with compressed air.

At ELAS Occupational Health we specialise in the provision of onsite occupational hygiene and occupational health surveillance. Whether you have 1 employee or 1,000 we can provide a bespoke, cost effective occupational health surveillance service to meet your exact needs. Call 0845 862 8040 for more information.
