Health monitoring is a way to check if the health of workers is being harmed from exposure to hazards while carrying out work, and aims to detect early signs of ill-health or disease. Health monitoring can show if control measures are working effectively.

Overview/Description Health monitoring and review It may not be possible to prevent all cases of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) but there are things you can do, at work, to help prevent symptoms occurring or getting worse. Health monitoring is an informal, non-statutory method of surveying your workforce for symptoms of ill health, including lower back pain. This type of occupational health management system can enable you, as an employer, to be aware of health problems and intervene to prevent problems being caused or made worse by work activities. Another important role of health monitoring is to feedback into a system that reviews the current control methods in place. In addition, there are specific regulations dealing with Manual Handling in the workplace. To ensure you are complying with your duties under these regulations you should refer to IOPS guidance if manual handling is a risk in your workplace. Course Content
