Lung Function Testing
Spirometry is the most common test of lung function and mainstay for the screening and management of workers at risk of occupational lung disease. For some workplaces it is important to establish a baseline respiratory function so that an employee’s lung function can be monitored over time to determine whether any occupational exposures to airborne hazards such as vapors, dusts, gases, fumes are impacting on lung function.
Mental Health Services
You have Public Liability insurance and Workers Compensation but how can you protect your business from the downside of poor mental health? Legislation passed in 2012 dictates every workplace has a legal obligation to protect employee health and safety, both physically and mentally. But it makes great financial sense for your business too to take steps to ensure the working environment is considerate of mental health and aware of what makes a happy, healthy workplace.
Workplace Health Checks
Work Health Specialists deliver a variety of on-site health checks that provide your employees with a confidential assessment of their health status. All results are received on the spot and are 100% confidential. Employees will receive their own personal results with feedback and healthy lifestyle advice to aid them in making improvements.
