Safety critical work
Safety critical areas such as transport, energy generation and the construction industry may have policies in place to carry out drug or alcohol testing in certain circumstances. We work with a UK accredited ISO 17025 laboratory to conduct these tests. We are unable to provide drug or alcohol testing if your organisation does not have an appropriate drug and alcohol policy in place.
If your employees spend a significant amount of time sitting at a computer then they could experience fatigue, eye strain, upper limb problems or backache. The causes may not be obvious and are generally a combination of factors such as poor posture, poor lighting or badly designed office space. Our occupational health nurses can carry out an on-site visit and provide a comprehensive report that includes cost effective workplace recommendations.
Employers must offer workers a free health assessment before they become a night worker. Workers don’t have to accept. You should take into account that night work might increase an employee’s stress levels.
We offer a night worker’s assessment which is usually a questionnaire. The questionnaire is screened by our qualified nurses. Your employee will be offered a follow-up examination by one of our nurses if you are unsure whether the worker is fit for night work. We recommend that a repeat assessment is offered regularly.
If we advise that your employee has a health problem that is related to night work, then the Working Time Regulation advise that where possible, you should offer suitable other work.

Workplace transport drivers
We offer medical assessments for Group 1 Drivers, Group 2 Drivers and Lift Truck drivers.
In line with DVLA requirements, the HSE suggests employers screen potential transport operators for fitness before employment and at 5 yearly intervals from the age of 45. The HSE also recommends that you organise an assessment after an absence of more than one month or after a short absence if it is likely that the illness has affected the workers fitness to operate workplace transport.
Our nurses and occupational health consultants work together to carry out these assessments and so to minimise disruption to your organisation, we recommend that these take place in one of our locations in Nottingham.
Work in healthcare settings
Employers need to be able to demonstrate that they have an effective employee immunisation programme in place. We can offer advice on the recommended vaccines for your employees depending on their work environment. We are experts in delivering vaccinations and immunisations to care workers in hospitals, nursing homes, medical laboratories and other health and social care settings. We can offer the full range of vaccines recommended for healthcare workers by the Department of Health. Our vaccination programmes include hepatitis B, hepatitis A, tuberculosis, chicken pox, measles, mumps and rubella, anthrax, diphtheria, tetanus and polio, typhoid.
We will keep a record of employee’s vaccines to provide reassurance for you should you be inspected by Health and Safety Executive or the Care Quality Commission.
Workers in health and social care settings who give injections as part of their work, or who may come into contact with discarded syringes and needles, are at risk of injury. This could potentially lead to a blood borne infection, such as hepatitis B, HIV and hepatitis C. They should therefore have support in place from an occupational health service that will carry out the necessary tests and follow up care based on national guidance. Although this type of incident is rare, it can be very traumatic and we will offer care and support for your employee on an ongoing basis.
Protecting your employees from seasonal flu
To reduce lost time from work we can provide your employees with a yearly seasonal flu vaccination. We can deliver the vaccinations at your place of work, or at one of our locations in Nottingham. Our prices are competitive and to make sure we can deliver the vaccines to best suit the needs or your company, we advise you to contact us during the summer months to discuss your requirements.
Employee Support Services
We have a team of experienced and fully qualified in-house counsellors based in our service. Our counsellors can provide face-to-face confidential person centered counselling at either of our locations in Nottingham.
Health and well-being
We can support you to create a positive and healthy working environment and our experienced nurses will help your employees to make healthy lifestyle choices. Our programmes aim to:
· Ensure staff ‘know their numbers’ - blood pressure readings, cholesterol and blood sugar level checks. We provide immediate feedback and straightforward advice to your employees on ways to improve their health.
- Improve mental wellbeing
- Change behaviour – such as smoking, alcohol and substance misuse
