Health and Safety

Health Surveillance

Health surveillance for University workers is provided via Occupational Health for certain groups of workers in relation to specific process hazards on the basis of a risk assessment that considers exposure routes, extent and duration.

This can arise under the following circumstances:

    • Medical examinations required under certain prescribed sets of health and safety legislation when specific exposure criteria are met, e.g. for asbestos, ionising radiation
    • Regular health surveillance checks for groups of workers exposed to particular hazards, e.g. respiratory sensitisers, noise and vibration
    • Immunity checks and vaccinations for employees who need to be protected against infectious diseases whilst at work, including work with, or potential exposure to, human blood borne viruses

The University's management arrangement on Health Surveillance - identifying the need, organising a programme of referral and monitoring results - is available via Related Links adjacent.
