Health Surveillance

Health surveillance is about having procedures in place to detect work-related ill health at an early stage and acting on the results.


The main aims are to safeguard the health of employees (including identifying and protecting people at increased risk), and also to check the long-term effectiveness of control measures.


Rochdale Occupational Health Service Ltd, with over 50 years experience, are well placed to advise and assist you in tailoring a Health Surveillance programme to meet your company’s needs.


Types of Health Surveillance include:-

‘Spiro’ is the Greek word for breath and Spirometry is defined as the measurement of breathing. Lung function tests have long been recognised as one of the most important tests available to assess lung impairment.

People with deficient sight skills can attain adequate vision if professional eye care is obtained when needed. This is why Vision Screening is playing an important role in industry.  For more information click here
