HSE publishes new guidance on health surveillance

The Health and Safety Executive has launched new guidance to make it simpler for bosses to understand how they can check and protect their workers' wellbeing.

This new guidance aims to make it easier for employers to recognise whether their workers require health surveillance, look at how to approach the issue and ways in which they can benefit from the results.

Paul Beaumont, HSE's policy lead for health surveillance, said: "We know from our work with industry that some businesses can be unclear about when health surveillance is needed and how to implement it, so are deterred from taking action.

"Other companies could be wasting money unnecessarily by implementing it where it's not needed."

The guidance will also make it clearer when action is unnecessary, meaning businesses can save time and money.

Businesses need to make sure they keep up to date with guidance from the HSE, as the organisation's advice can help them to boost the efficiency of their safety processes.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801558543-ADNFCR
