      Our medical assessments enable you to:

      • Maintain compliance with health and safety legislation and regulations including the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 in line with industry best practice.
      • Fulfil corporate duty of care obligations and minimise risk of potential legal action resulting from negligence.
      • Utilise diagnostic tools to monitor the health of your employees, detecting any clinical issues as early as possible and putting in place effective adjustments to prevent conditions from worsening.
      • Identify control measures such as additional training on safe working practices and the use of PPE, or highlighting the importance of early reporting of health concerns.
    • Diagnostic tools and data to help decision-making

      At Medigold Health, we are passionate about harnessing the power of technology to collect and present data clearly, helping you to make informed decisions without delay. Thanks to investment in our systems, the process is simple.

      • Our occupational health practitioners use our proprietary health surveillance app to record and track the health of your employees on our bespoke portal.
      • Each individual provides their medical history via an online questionnaire which is annotated by an occupational health technician with recommendations for activities to improve their health and wellbeing. Relevant test results and photographs are also uploaded to the portal.
      • After each appointment, we supply a detailed report for your employee containing the medical assessment results.
      • At the same time, your employee’s line manager or HR team receive a simple summary containing only what they need to know which is whether or not your employee is fit for their job role, and any guidance to support them in working safely.
