What are Occupational Health Assessments?

An Occupational Health Assessment is a medical examination performed by an Occupational Health Physician. Its main aim is to advise employers on the employee’s health and make recommendations on what adjustments could be considered to ensure a safe/healthy working environment for that employee. It can also be an assessment of somebody’s fitness to work.

The JIB’s four approved Occupational Health Assessment Providers will carry out the following industry-specified series of tests as standard:

  • Musculoskeletal questionnaire/assessment
  • Skin health check
  • Respiratory health check
  • Audiometry health check
  • Blood pressure
  • Vision (Keystone test)
  • Vibration health check
  • Colour vision (Ishihara)
  • Urinalysis
  • Mental health/workplace stress assessment

Take a look at the information below for more details. You can also download this as a leaflet.
