Preventing illness and improving wellbeing in the workplace

Our Occupational Health Services

 

We provide a comprehensive range of services to support the physical and psychological health of both your static and travelling employees. Explore them below:

Pre-Employment Health Assessments

Anvil’s online pre-employment health screening service allows us to provide an initial assessment of the general health and wellbeing of your prospective employees as part of your employment suitability criteria. Full medical assessments can then be undertaken with individuals highlighted as requiring further review. We can then make recommendations to you based on these assessments regarding the suitability of the candidate for the specific work environment they may be entering. An equivalent of this screening can also be facilitated for permanent/current employees that you may wish to retrospectively screen.

Return to Work Assessments

Returning to work after a period of illness or injury can be a difficult period for both you and your affected employees. We can work with you to ensure that employees are able to return to work successfully and safely and can provide you with guidance on appropriate return to work procedures. We can also provide assessments outlining the recommended courses of action for individuals, facilitating positive outcomes and helping to reduce further sickness absence.

Work Related Injury or Illness

Assessing and dealing with stress in the workplace is just as important as dealing with physical health concerns. We work with organisations on a number of initiatives that help them to pre-empt, recognise and combat potential workplace stress factors. We also devise and implement bespoke employee wellbeing programmes and provide a 24/7 employee assistance service should employees find themselves in need of 1-2-1 advice or more immediate emergency assistance.

Mental Health at Work

At least one in four people will suffer from a mental health issue at some point in their life and for those working away from their country of residence or travelling frequently, the likelihood of being affected is even greater. Anvil can work with you on several programmes to help identify, raise awareness of, and address mental health concerns. Via our own in-house trained counsellors and medical practitioners, we also provide 24/7 global support for employees who may find themselves affected or have individual concerns.

Wellbeing Programmes

Anvil can work with you to provide a range of different wellbeing programmes for your employees aimed at improving the overall awareness of key health and wellbeing issues and the uptake of health focused initiatives. We can deliver sessions on-site on topics such as smoking cessation, men’s health, women’s health, cancer awareness, healthy eating, managing stress and anxiety.

General employee resilience training can also help significantly, teaching employees how to recognise stress factors in their lives and deal with them in the most effective way.

Workplace Safety and Ergonomics

Carrying out health and safety inspections of the workplace to identify legal compliance with local legislation and provide improvement plans where attention is required. Anvil can undertake on-site ergonomic assessments in order to identify potential issues and enhance the overall performance and wellbeing of your employees. Assessments are carried out by chartered physiotherapists or equivalent and include 1-2-1 consultations with employees, the completion of individual recommendations outlining measures to help prevent or treat possible injuries, and summary departmental overviews. On-site ergonomics awareness training can also be provided for specific groups.

Alcohol and drug testing

Anvil can provide drink/drug testing for employees in a variety of ways. Tests can either be carried out as part of pre-employment screening for high risk roles or for all candidates, as necessary. Alternatively, they can be carried out on a randomised or case by case basis in accordance with your official drink and drugs policy. We can also assist you in the development of these policies as required.

GP Consultations & Telemedicine

Video-enabled appointments attended by a fully qualified clinician to offer expert advice, treatment plans and prescriptions if needed. Clinicians include doctors, nurses, paramedics or other relevant healthcare professionals. All our doctors are registered and licenced to practise in the UK by the General Medical Council (GMC).

They possess the relevant qualifications, experience and insurance cover.

In most cases, the use of telemedicine can negate the need for a more traditional ‘face-to-face’ consultation. An appropriate diagnosis and management plan can largely be formulated from a telemedicine consultation alone. In a small number of cases, patients will require further examination and/or investigations that telemedicine cannot provide. The underlying principle of involving the patient in a shared decision-making process stands true for all forms of consultations, including telemedicine.

Our video/telemedicine consultations are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the independent regulator of health and social care in England. The objective of regulation in the area of telemedicine is to ensure the same quality of care, regardless of the modality used to provide healthcare, thereby ensuring that the method of delivering care is safe and effective.

Eye Tests

Regular on-site eye tests carried out by occupational health nurses, including individual employee reports, advice and/or referral to an optician if required.

Vaccinations

Annual on-site flu vaccinations in order to reduce the likelihood of infection and prevent the spread of the virus throughout your extended workforce.

Occupational Travel Health

We understand the importance of being able to readily access comprehensive occupational travel health support, so we’ve developed a range of appropriate services that cover all stages of travel – pre, during and post, so you can cover every aspect of your employees’ journeys. Furthermore, we’ll work with you to create a customised package of complete travel health and wellbeing support that uniquely fits your organisation and the individuals within it. We can help you:

  • Support travellers with pre-existing physical and psychiatric diagnoses
  • Support travellers who develop travel related physical and psychiatric illnesses
  • Promote wellness and the benefits of emotional wellbeing to your travelling population
Expert view
People are at their most vulnerable when in unfamiliar places and under pressure to deliver.

Pre-travel medical screening is an opportunity missed by many organisations to assess the physical, mental and emotional health of would-be travellers ahead of time. By proactively flagging any specific needs to support and promote good physical and psychological health, creating a plan and allocating the right resources, companies can enable their teams to be more resilient.

Travel Health Assessments

Our screening service helps to promote and protect the physical and psychological health of your international travellers (and their spouses/dependents) by carrying out comprehensive health risk assessments. These assessments provide you with recommendations on individuals’ fitness for deployment or travel and appropriate measures to mitigate against any potential health risks identified. We can also provide advice for the individuals on how to best manage issues highlighted. Further assessments are recommended during long term overseas assignments and on return from travel or overseas deployment.

Vaccinations

Our travel health specialists will complete a full risk assessment and recommend vaccines appropriate to your travellers’ destinations and existing health status.

Malaria Medication & Testing

We can advise on medication to prevent malaria for all regions of the world.

Medical & General Travel Kits

We can advise on medicines, insect repellents, mosquito nets, first aid and travel accessories and can put together customised kits for specific trips and requirements should your travellers need more in the way of first aid and medicines.

Disease Screening

Our Doctors can run a range of tests to identify any illnesses your team members may have contracted during their international work. We’ll recommend treatment as required to ensure everyone returns to work healthy.

Medication Resupply

We can arrange new prescriptions and resupply of medications for travellers continuing international work. We’ll ensure they’re replenished with everything they need to remain healthy.

Mid and Post-Travel Psychosocial Wellbeing Assessments

Our specialists can reassess the mental health of your team members during their deployment and on their return from work overseas. We can continue training – responding to any difficulties being encountered – before they head back and advise on further treatment to make sure they return to normal life without issues.
