A day in the life of an Occupational Health Advisor

26th April 2018

I had a call for an urgent sickness review yesterday so was at Loram Rail this morning at 07.00 to assess the employee’s fitness for work. Luckily for him, his condition is improving, and he can return to work with restricted duties to continue his rehabilitation.

Then up to one of our Aerospace Companies in Mansfield to check new employee’s pre-placement questionnaires to ensure that no reasonable adjustments are required to enable them to work as effective team members. In order to contract here, my team needs to be ITAR (international Trading of Arms Regulations) registered.

Then for 2pm, I am carrying out a visit for another of our contracted Aerospace Companies. Unfortunately, it is less likely that this person will be able to return to work due to a medical condition which is the advice I will be giving the Company.

This afternoon I will be reporting on the health surveillance carried out by my 2 highly competent technicians, including fork lift medicals, hearing, lung function, skin and eye tests. I will then be able to issue fitness certificates for the employees to their Human Resources departments.

Later this evening, I have instant drug and alcohol testing to carry out for local trades people working at Hinkley Point Nuclear Power Station.

We work for a variety of Companies, including rail, aerospace, automotive, abattoir, pottery and paint manufacturing to name but a few. We currently have 35 companies we work for regularly and various outsourced HR companies we do ad hoc work for.
