Effective Early Intervention in Occupational Health
Research has demonstrated that early intervention to provide support at the first signs of a health problem, before it becomes more serious, reduced the duration and associated costs of long-term sickness absence. Early intervention can return considerable cost savings if the company adopts the methodology.
Our occupational health team will work closely with HR departments and managers to effectively manage and report on their sickness absence process. The Occupational Physician acts as interpreter of the medical information, putting it into temporal and functional terms allowing the Manager or HR to make appropriate decisions.
It is essential to allow for appropriate case discussion and management with the aim of risk reduction, return to work (with appropriate adjustments if needed) and a reduction in overall absence.
