What is Occupational Health?
Occupational health services support your employees if they have been off sick for a long time, are returning from sickness absence, or are struggling to continue working due to injury or ill-health. It helps to promote health and wellbeing and has an emphasis on maintaining a positive relationship between employees and their work.
Management referrals can be seen by specialist occupational health nurses, occupational health physicians, and occupational health physiotherapists. At Bespoke Wellbeing, we provide occupational health assessments for musculoskeletal injuries and conditions by our senior team of physiotherapists.
Following an assessment, referrals should generate a formal occupational health report answering your specific questions and giving you recommendations or workplace adjustments that would support your employee in the workplace.
If you have not made an occupational health referral before and would like to speak to a member of our team, please email us firstname.lastname@example.org.
Occupational Health Physiotherapy
Occupational health physiotherapists have specialist musculoskeletal knowledge to assess, diagnose, and give work specific advice based on the injury or condition.
During a consultation, the physiotherapists will typically complete the following tasks:
- Diagnose the musculoskeletal injury
- Reassure and give injury specific advice and exercises
- Give recommendations and adjustments for the workplace
- Identify any barriers that may affect a return to work
- Communicate with managers / human resources
