How does the Occupational Health Service help?
Over 6 million workers in the UK had a non-fatal injury in their workplace each year. On average, each of these workers took over 17 days off work. The impact on any workplace of any worker needing to take time off due to illness or injury is significant. It affects the team, the business and sometimes the mental health of the individual involved.
But, sometimes an employee’s pathway back to work is hindered by factors other than just physical injury. Emotional trauma and mental health problems are just a few of the issues that could be hindering a quick return to work. Our workplace Occupational Health benefit is unique in that it does not just focus on the impact of long-term absence on the business, but instead provides a package of care that assesses all the factors that might be preventing someone from returning to work. Our holistic approach means that be it physical or mental health factors affecting them, your team will get the support they need to make as quick a recovery as possible.
