Occupational Health Services
Occupational health services are medical examinations tailored to the professional environment. It is ideal for employers wanting to take an in depth look at their employee’s welfare and identify any potential issues which could jeopardise their productivity at work or look at current issues affecting their work and suggest resolutions to these.
Often occupational health assessments will be conducted with absentees to get a deeper understanding of the causes of the absence and identify measures which can be put in place to support the individual and accelerate recovery.
MERT International’s occupational health specialists are ideally and uniquely placed to support and help people stay in work and live full and healthy lives.
