Mount Anvil's Occupational Health Provider were in post until February 2014. They were SEQOHS accredited in January 2013.
Since February 2014, Mount Anvil have directly employed a Paramedic to cover all their locations. All sub-contractors are responsible for their own employeeâ€™s health surveillance and screening as per the Sub-Contractor standards that are now issued with all new contracts.
However, health checks are easily accessible and encouraged to all Mount Anvil employees and sub-contractors employees. Health checks are carried out at every location, Monday - Friday and these can be booked via email or text to enable employees to book appointments at a time convenient to them. Information, advice and referrals to other healthcare professionals are made where appropriate and follow up appointments can be made with the Paramedic to allow regular monitoring of health conditions without the need for the employee to take time off work which could result in loss of salary and performance reduction for their employer. Any lifestyle changes, such as smoking cessation and hypercholesterolaemia reduction are encouraged and are discussed depending on an individualâ€™s circumstances.
A report is compiled on a monthly basis and is reviewed by the Senior Management Team.
