Introduction to UEA Staff Occupational Health
The Occupational Health Department of the University Medical Service is contracted to provide occupational health services to UEA staff. Our service is independent, impartial and totally confidential.
In line with national guidelines and standards we seek to assist the university to maximise the health and fitness of their workforce. We do this by:
- assessing the individual’s health on employment initially using a health questionnaire
- recommending adjustments that may assist individuals to reach their potential at work.
- accepting management referrals to advise on fitness for work, adjustments and/or return to work programmes.
-undertaking workstation assessments at the request of management
- providing health surveillance to ensure individuals are adequately protected in high risk areas
providing immunisations to protect individuals where appropriate.
