Annual Health Monitoring

The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 necessitates that employers monitor the health of their workers who are exposed to health hazards. In basic terms it means that WorkSafe (formally known as Department of Labour or OSH) require companies who expose their workers to noise or respiratory contaminants (dusts, fibres, fumes, gases) must arrange for those workers to have annual hearing and lung function assessments. Noise and air contaminants are not the only health hazards either.  Conditions such as working with heavy metals, vibration, toxic chemicals and repetitive tasks along with many others are also considered health hazards for which other health surveillance may be required.

Testimonials

"Working for Health was engaged by B.E.C.A. consultants on the DC6 site at Fonterra Whareroa in Hawera, to provide a site occupational health nurse for the project. The nurse visited the site twice a month, engaging our work crew in a number of health issues. Our work crew was made up of mainly middle aged men, most were smokers. The nurse was very successful, having 3 of the 11 smokers give up smoking and a further 2 have cut back. The professionalism of the nurse throughout the project has been outstanding and I would not hesitate in recommending Working for Health to any company for health service."
