Dr Shaw and his team of highly skilled and experienced health physicians have been providing quality occupational health advice and delivering corporate wellness strategies to industry and commerce throughout Yorkshire and beyond for many years.
For many employers, the two health matters that cause the most difficulties in the working environment are; sickness absence and health issues caused by work. The Tower Clinic offers a range of occupational health services to provide solutions to each aspect of these problems, helping employers to maintain a healthy, effective and productive workforce.
While we are inclined to agree with those, who say happy people are healthy people, it is our firm belief that good health generates good business.
The Tower Clinic specialises in providing convenient onsite/workplace and off site services to all types of organisations from SMEs to large blue chip operations. We can either provide a bespoke occupational health service tailored to meet the needs of your company or we can provide additional support to your existing operation.
Occupational Health Case Management/Sickness Absence
The aim of case management is to identify the issues that have led to occupational ill health, to develop actions to restore health and to remove any barriers or obstacles that prevent a successful return to work – all within the shortest possible timescale.
A number of tools are used to evaluate the progress of each case and to develop return to work strategies. Amongst them, is the use of clinical pathways, treatment protocols, disability duration guidelines, independent medical examinations, functional capacity evaluations, external treatments, job analysis and vocational rehabilitation.
Occupational Health Surveillance
Health surveillance programmes are essential in the modern day working environment, where Health & Safety legislation (Health & Safety Executive) requires businesses to undertake risk assessments for workplace activities. Putting appropriate control measures in place, identifying possible health risks and monitoring employees’ health are all vital to the continued success of any business.
As occupational health screening is not always possible within the company premises, The Tower Clinic offers the perfect solution with its fully equipped, state-of-the-art health surveillance suite. Our onsite health surveillance service can include:
- Respiratory/lung functioning testing
- Audiometry (hearing tests)
- Hand/arm vibration assessments
- Dermatological assessments (skin)
