What are occupational health services?

Occupational health services aim to understand and improve the overall health of your workforce, with regards to both their physical and mental wellbeing. This happens through a series of assessments designed to uncover your company's unique health risks and create an action plan to minimise these risks and assist employees with their needs.

Occupational health services may also include other supportive services, such as navigating the most recent legislation, assisting employees returning to work after absence, vaccinations and more.

What do occupational health services include?

There are a wide range of occupational health services that aim to improve the health or your workforce and reduce absence. You may have flexibility over which of these services you purchase, while others may be grouped together within a single policy. We can help you navigate the various services on offer and answer any questions you have about each, with some of the options being as follows:

What happens when you purchase occupational health services?

After purchasing occupational health services, it’s important to understand what happens next. The exact next steps will depend on your provider and the types of service you opt for, but the below offers an example of what may happen:


Your provider will deliver the services you’ve chosen, such as assessing your employees' current physical and mental health.


Where applicable, you’ll receive the results of these services from a dedicated account manager. You may be given access to an online portal to view these results and other related information.


Your results will be reviewed, analysed and communicated to you through reports. You’ll be provided with insights into your business based on the facts.


From these results, you may be advised on changes you can make to combat the risks. This may be new internal procedures, equipment or through ongoing support services.


To help with the ongoing management, you’ll receive check-ins and support from your account manager, as well as checklists and to-do lists to complete.


As you continue to offer occupational health services, you’ll be provided with more information that you can use to gauge the impact of changes and to understand any new risks.
