With responsibility for people's health and wellbeing falling on employers, Occupational Health can play a vital role in supporting employees to put in place an effective framework. Occupational health services improve the health of the working population, help prevent work-related illnesses, provide early interventions for those who develop a health condition thus preventing avoidable sickness absense and increase the efficiency and productivity of companies.
