Occupational Health more than just surveillance and screening
Collingwood Health’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr Sayeed Khan (chief medical adviser at Make UK, the Manufacturers’ Organisation), speaks to Employee Benefits about the need for targeted marketing from Occupational Health providers.
As Dr Khan says, “One key activity in this area is training line managers to recognise employees suffering with stress. Identifying this early can help deal with issues before employees either go off work or leave the business entirely.” Collingwood Health can assist with employers’ many options for Mental Health and Stress in the Workplace delivery, as well as presenteeism, or working with untreated illnesses.
The more employers aware of their options, the less financial loss will be experienced in UK industry.
