Occupational Health Service
Designed to support Schools in complying with legislation relating to employee health at work in the education sector and to optimise employee health, attendance and wellbeing.
Our OH service includes establishing each individual employee’s fitness for work, helping to manage employee absence, supporting return to work strategies and assisting in promoting general health & wellbeing of the workforce.
In addition, we provide support to your staff, by giving them access to counselling/CPT, an online CPT training course and anxiety management.
Why choose our Occupational Health Service?
Advisory service for employee health-related matters
Initial advice from experienced occupational health practitioners to schools by telephone and email on employee health-related matters. For example, compliance with Disability criteria of the Equality Act requires consideration to be given to reasonable adjustments and/or adaptations that may be required either at recruitment or while in employment. This service provides access to fully confidential, legally compliant professional clinical guidance on this and other health related employee/employment related issues.
New starter online health screening for all employees
Discounted fees for health assessments for all new starters, tailored to reflect the content of each selected job role. An initial screening process will be carried out with certification of fitness provided where appropriate. Where the initial screening process identifies issues requiring either a telephone assessment(s) or communication with the employee’s GP, such work will also be undertaken at a discounted price.
Up to Six sessions of Counselling or CBT per employee
Our counselling service gives your staff confidential access to a specialist therapist when they need it most, helping them deal with a wide range of issues including depression, relationship problems, anxiety, stress, and bereavement; helping individuals work through negative thought patterns or traumatic experiences by working on some coping mechanisms.
Your staff can arrange structured sessions with the same therapist to ensure consistency and a positive working relationship, giving them the emotional support they require to help them develop their resilience and talk about their concerns.
Anxiety management service
Our specialist practitioners will take the time to speak to and understand worries your staff have and provide therapeutic interventions and coping mechanisms, that will ensure their anxiety doesn’t take over.
Staff have the ability to self-refer to Smart Clinic confidentially or can be referred by their employer.
Discounted fees for occupational health referrals and other services
Included in the annual fee is an entitlement to 10% discount on the current price list for all Occupational Health referrals and other services provided as part of this service.
Online Resources & Updating service
Online access to a dedicated website for school Leaders, offering guidance and access to information on a wide range of health issues.
Information provided regarding changes in occupational health legislation relating to the education sector and regarding best practice in respect of health and wellbeing in the workplace.
Online CBT Training course
Access to online CBT training course to help your staff to manage how they feel by demonstrating the links between their feelings and what they do, think and say.
This element of the service consists of 8 CPT training sessions that staff can attend in their own time. Staff can complete these sessions at their own speed, with the ability to save their progress and pick up where they’ve left off. As this programme is online, it can be used on a smartphone, tablet, or computer with a stable internet connection.
Judicium helped us to resolve a potentially difficult personnel issue. Help and support has always been available at the end of a telephone or via email. In future I will consult Judicium about any employment law or HR related issues. I recommend their service highly."
