Managing Attendance

I.O.H. can assist in helping an organisation to manage and understand employee health-related problems by timely intervention as well as establishing facts and addressing those problems.

The effective management of health issues will ensure your retention of key staff, protection against claims and compliance with your statutory duties and employment law.  Referring an employee to an occupational health (OH) specialist will provide you with the information necessary to manage the employee’s medical condition in the most practical and appropriate way.  An OH Specialist may be a Nurse, Physician or Physiotherapist depending on the complexity and type of case referred.

Upon completion of a consultation, one of our OH Specialists will provide a detailed assessment of the employees’ health-related problem, with their consent, in the form of a report.  The report can advise management of the likely timescale for a return to work, reasonable adjustments, rehabilitation plans, together with any other matters necessary to facilitate a return to work. Work related factors or health issues which can affect work will also be addressed. The consultation can provide an opportunity for the OH specialist to discuss with the employee additional advice regarding their condition and if required access other professionals such as their GP and other support networks.

If you would like to discuss a potential referral to one of our OH Specialists, please use the ‘contact us’ section or telephone 0191 493 1380, where a member of the team will be happy to help.

“The Banks Group, which includes Banks Mining, Banks Property and Banks Renewables, has used IOH as our advisers on all our occupational health issues since 2012.  Through working together we have been able to better manage the well-being of our workforce - keeping our people safe and fit for work.  This has meant that, in turn, we are better able to manage attendance matters.  IOH provide us with an excellent and efficient service.  I have no hesitation in recommending IOH to others.”
