Download: How to implement a health surveillance programme

In this document we provide step by step guidance to implementing a health surveillance programme in your work place.

The purpose of health surveillance is to:

  • Detect ill health at an early stage, allowing for better controls to be implemented to prevent it getting worse.
  • Provide data to help evaluate risks and control measures.
  • Enable employees to raise concerns about their health and work.
  • Reinforce training and education of employees on the impact of health effects of work and use of personal protective equipment.

We look at the following steps:

  • What are the hazards?
  • Do I need health surveillance?
  • What health surveillance do I need?
  • What is a health risk matrix?
  • Frequency for carrying out health surveillance.
  • Read case studies.
  • Checklist for ensuring competent health surveillance provision.
  • What feedback do I need?
  • What else do I need to think about?
  • How can we help?
