I am one of the Occupational Health Technicians, that works for David Barber OH Limited and I was recently asked to attend several country estates for full health surveillance and driver screening. The estate employees have varied job roles from farmworkers, estate and forestry workers to gardeners and heavy plant workers.
We were recently asked to carry out some drug and alcohol testing for a client. The client had been tipped off about an employee dealing drugs on the shop floor. They had a drug and alcohol policy in place and decided to go for a blanket approach and to test everyone including management and office staff.
Isocyanates are one of the leading causes of occupational asthma in the UK; it is a legal requirement to protect all employees from this substance in the workplace.
In early 2017, I attended one of our regular factories and saw a gentleman to do his health surveillance checks who was working the night shift. He was a lovely gentleman in his early 50’s with a BMI of 34. As I was going through the various tests with him, I took his blood pressure, which was very high – 190/118. See the next steps taken, and what can be achieved through a visit from us.
Recently, a 45 year old male attended our new clinic for a routine hearing test as the nature of his work meant he worked in a noisy environment regularly, you don’t need to be an expert to know this can be very harmful. After we had completed the tests he was found to have one sided hearing loss. One sided hearing loss is not normally a work related or noise induced condition, but more often than not an underlying medical problem.
