OH Staffing – Weekly Blog

Recruitment News

In July the UK Government launched its consultation on improving health at work alongside proposed changes to improve statutory sick pay.

The consultation has a number of questions, key ones being:

  • How should the government help small businesses afford OH services?
  • How can the government make sure OH services are good?
  • How can we tell if an OH service has helped somebody stay in work?
  • Do you have any other ideas about how to make OH services better?

This consultation seeks views on different ways in which government and employers can take action to reduce ill health-related job loss. Disabled people and people with long-term health conditions are at greater risk of falling out of work.

The proposals aim to support and encourage early action by employers for their employees with long-term health conditions, and improve access to quality, cost-effective occupational health.

The Department for Work and Pensions and the Department of Health and Social Care want to understand the effect of these proposals on:

  • Business
  • Individuals
  • The occupational health profession.

Occupational Health News

Occupational health practitioners and providers have been urged to educate their HR colleagues and employers about their role and the benefits they can bring to an organisation, after research found understanding of OH was low.

Although 80% of HR decision-makers polled by health and wellbeing provider BHSF said they offered their staff access to OH, only 26% admitted they were familiar with any leading providers.

Although 60% said short-term sickness absence was a pressing concern for their organisation, BHSF found few HR decision-makers were aware of the role OH can play in improving absence rates.

Back pain was reported as their most significant health concern, by 68% of respondents. Perhaps surprisingly given recent coverage, mental health was identified as a concern by only 28% of HR practitioners.
